What to do

    1. In a small pot, add milk; warm until bubbles just begin to form around the edge of the pot.

    2. Stir in quinoa flakes, yoghurt and pear; cook over low heat until porridge has thickened, about 3-5 minutes.

    3. Ladle porridge into bowls and serve with an additional dollop of yoghurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkling of nuts.
