These super quick, vegetarian Quinoa, Peach and Ginger Birchers are the perfect snack or breakfast. You can make them the night before and grab them on the go, so they’re great for when you’re in a rush.
- 200g quinoa
- 200g porridge oats
- 4 tsp finely grated ginger
- 225ml milk, plus a little extra if required
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 6 x 120ml pots bio yogurt
- 6 ripe peaches
Boil the quinoa in plenty of cold water for about 18 mins until the grains burst. Tip into a sieve and rinse under under cold water. Meanwhile, tip the oats into a large bowl with the ginger. Pour over 400ml boiling water and stir well. The mixture will become quite thick, but this process does stop the slightly starchy taste that some birchers made with cold water have. Stir in 225ml milk, the vanilla and 3 pots of yogurt, then fold through the quinoa. Cover and chill overnight.
The next day, add a little more milk to get the consistency you want, then spoon into six bowls. Top two with a ½ pot yogurt each and 2 stoned and chopped peaches, then mix together.
