Start the day with a bowl of fluffy quinoa, sweet blackberries and a sprinkling of pistachios.

  1. Place the quinoa in a saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes until toasted, stirring frequently. Add the milk, water, brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt and bring to the boil, stirring well. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes until thick and the grains are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the jam and the redcurrant jelly in a small saucepan, stir well to combine, then fold in the blackberries.
  3. Spoon the quinoa porridge into serving bowls when ready and top with generous tablespoons of the jam mixture. Sprinkle the finely chopped pistachios on top and serve.
