  • 1½ cups water
  • ¼ cup quinoa
  • ¼ cup millet
  • ¼ cup amaranth
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Bring water to a boil. Add grains and salt and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until liquid is absorbed, about 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir to fluff.

To make a Sweet Porridge: Substitute some or all of the water with non-dairy milk. Add maple syrup and your choice of dried fruit, nuts or coconut to taste.

To make a Savory Porridge: Cook with broth instead of water, adding herbs, pepper and nuts to taste. Serve alongside hearty greens and beans.
