1.Combine quinoa and the water in a small saucepan; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Add milk; cook, covered, a further 5 minutes or until quinoa is tender.
2.Stir in apple and half the grapes.
3.Serve porridge, topped with remaining grapes, nuts and drizzled with honey.

We used a pink lady apple in this recipe. Most quinoa comes rinsed, but it’s a good habit to rinse it yourself under cold water until the water runs clear, then drain it. This removes any remaining outer coating, which has a bitter taste. Quinoa absorbs a lot of liquid. Depending how you like your porridge, add a little boiling water at the end of step 1 to thin it out.
