To make:

Peal the apple and cut into 8 segments. Place the apple slices on a baking tray and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Bake at 180c for about 7 minutes until the apple is soft but holding it shape.

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly under cold water before placing in a saucepan along with 200ml of cold water. Bring the water to a boil and cook the quinoa for 10 minutes until soft.

Place 20g of the almonds and the almond milk into a blender and blitz for 5 minutes until a thick almond paste.

Once the quinoa is cooked, drain the water and add the almond cream and a pinch of cinnamon.

Whilst you heat the quinoa through roast the rest of the almonds in the oven for about 7 minutes.

To serve, mix the goji berries through the quinoa and place into a bowl. Top the quinoa porridge with the rest of the almonds and baked apple slices.
