Chai Spiced Quinoa Bircher

Quinoa Bircher - An Apple A Day

Quinoa Bircher, because sometimes it’s just too hot for quinoa porridge! For added nutrition, opt for tri-coloured quinoa in order to boost your nutrient content. Given that you’re purchasing, preparing and eating the quinoa already, you’d be crazy not to opt for the extra nutrient boost.

Take my chai spiced quinoa porridge recipe and turn it into a healthy bircher for those warm summer mornings.


Units Scale
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 cinnamon quill (stick)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 cloves
  • 250 g quinoa
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. honey or maple syrup


  1. Place water, cinnamon stick, vanilla bean, star anise and cloves into a saucepan and bring to boil, reduce to simmer.
  2. Add quinoa and allow it to simmer until liquid has evaporated. This will take approximately 10mins or so however, watch closely to avoid burning the porridge.
  3. Add your choice of creamy almond or coconut milk and continue to reduce down until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Stir through sweetener of your choice.
  4. To make quinoa bircher, allow the above porridge mix to cool.
  5. In a small glass or glass container, layer 4 tablespoons of porridge mixture with coconut yoghurt and fresh berries. Store in the fridge over night.
