Fall Recipe from Glitretind Restaurant

Breakfast served in Glitretind Restaurant at Stein Lodge

Shorter days and crisp mornings that lure you back to bed make us want to cozy up with some warm, homemade food for every meal. Luckily, we have an award-winning restaurant here at Stein Eriksen Lodge serving delicious cuisine to fill you up on chilly fall days. Whether you want a filling breakfast, warming lunch, or decadent dinner, Glitretind Restaurant has many delicious offerings to keep your belly warm and full during the changing of seasons.

We’re enjoying a house-made Quinoa Porridge as part of our breakfast buffet each morning at Glitretind. And now you can make it at home too. Filling and full of flavor, the porridge is a delicious and comfortable way to start a cool autumn day. The quinoa and rice base keeps you satisfied throughout the morning while the almond milk and agave syrup add a touch of sweet. It’s topped with berries and dried apricots that’ll have you making this delicious fall recipe over and over all season long.

Quinoa Porridge

2 Cups Quinoa, 1 cup White and 1 cup Brown Rice
4 Cups Water
1 Cup Almond Milk
½ Cup Diced Dried Apricots
2 Tbsp Agave Syrup
1 tsp Kosher Salt

Place the quinoa in a thick bottom sauce pan and add the water and salt.
Cook this mixture for 20 minutes on low heat; the quinoa will open up and become soft. Do not let the pan get dry while it is cooking, and if necessary add water.
Add the almond milk to the quinoa and bring to a simmer.
Add the diced apricots and agave syrup and mix thoroughly.
Remove this from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
Serve with fresh berries
