Gluten Free Warm Quinoa Breakfast Porridge with Apple & Sultana Topping

I thought I would experiment away from my typical favourite oats and try a quinoa porridge for breakfast yesterday morning.

The quinoa has a really nutty taste and I love it in savory dinner dishes. This breakfast meal I enjoyed too, and I think would taste great with the addition of nuts and maybe a drizzle of maple/honey/agave. Quinoa is a great and versatile grain for people with allergies/intolerances to gluten and definitely one of my favorites!
