quinoa and oats?

Personally, I stick with regular porridge oats for brekkie. I know that you can use the quinoa flakes for a porridge style brekkie. So use the flakes instead of whole quinoa which take a little longer to cook. The flakes will cook in the same time as the porridge.
I've only seen quinoa that looks like sort of large granules. i'll have to have a look in the healthfood shop for flakes and give that a go
I think you can get the flakes in Holland and Barrett. I remember trying it years ago when on a previous low GI diet. AS Irish Molly said, the flakes would cook in the same time as the oats I think, but the 'normal' quinoa takes about 15 - 20 mins so much longer.

sadly I'm not in the uk, so no holland and barretts unfortunately. i moved to Aus from England 4 years ago.
I did end up finding the flakes in the supermarket but at $7.40 (about 4.5pounds - coiincidentally I've only just realised my keyboard doesn't have a pound sign key, how strange is that!) for 500ml I decided to stick to regular porridge at $1 for 2 kilos!!

Personally, I think regular porridge is just as filling. Even the quinoa grains are expensive here in Ireland but I think they are great as a substitute for rice or pasta.
