I'm also having lots of hot bowls. I'm still loving oat-based porridges, but after bulk cooking some quinoa recently, quinoa porridge varieties have featured too. This apple and peanut butter version was a winning mix.
In case you're wondering how I'm eating hot bowls with a 10-week-old baby, the answer (and my current favourite possession) is a baby carrier. Mini Bite does not nap at all well in her cot, but she goes off beautifully in the carrier and after a walk outside she will often stay sleeping in it for an hour or more in the house. This gives me time to deal with the never-ending washing, cook up quinoa (and other things) in bulk and eat bowls like this one, carefully balanced above her head...
Apple and peanut butter quinoa porridge
A delicious and protein-boosting twist on oat porridges
Author: Bite-sized thoughts
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 apple, chopped
1 tbsp peanut butter powder + 1 tsp peanut butter, OR, 1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat until simmering. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring regularly, for 3 or so minutes. The mixture will thicken on cooking and the liquid should be absorbed at the time of serving.
