Too much sugar! 3tsp per packet
Not sure why these taste so sweet or why reviewers feel the need to add more sugar, I can only assume they have high sugar diets. 11g per 100g is way too much sugar for what is meant to be a healthy breakfast. Eggs anyone!
So so easy!
This porridge is wonderful and ever so easy to prepare. I also use it to make quinoa muffins for my toddler - he adores them. Also work well as an addition to pancake batter. Really versatile and can be flavoured as you desire.
What am I not getting?
Firstly the smell. I can't put my finger on it but it is strange and plant based. Then the texture which is nothing like porridge more akin to semolina. Smooth with a graininess. Lastly the taste, unpalatable. Raspberry jam is the only thing that will mask the flavour sufficiently but it still lurks in the background. Nasty nasty product., If you are vegan this must be ideal but it doesn't satiate me until lunchtime like oats do.
quick and easy porridge
Makes smooth porridge, with less stirring effort than making oat porridge. But quinoa is bland in taste and texture, need to add extra ingredients to make it more interesting. I tried it drizzled with local honey, could have benefited from something more. I'm interested to try the granola recipe on back of packet.
Nice alternative to porridge.
This is a nice alternative to porridge - I wouldn't have thought to use quinoa in this way. Particularly good with fruit as it seems to go well with the slightly fibrous texture.
healthy and declcious
Really enjoyed porridge made with this, also tried the recipe on the packaging - again very nice
