One of my recent experiments I just had to share.. it may seem a little crazy but bear with me. After reading about the benefits of tumeric (here) I started experimenting with it in everything. I found that adding it to porridge along with cinnamon makes a really great breakfast. This is one of my favourite recipes at the moment – I am having it every day! The spices make it really warming and comforting and the toppings turn it into a tasty morning treat.
Prep time: 15 mins (5 mins to prepare and 10 mins to cook)
1/2 cup oats
1 cup plant milk (I use soy or oat milk)
I put 1/2-1tsp for the spices, just experiment and find the amount of each which tastes best to you. I usually just guess how much I am putting in so it varies slightly each time.
Small handful raisins
Squeeze of any sweetener (I use agave or maple syrup)
1/2tbsp ground flaxseeds
Sprinkle of almond flakes
- Add all ingredients except sweetener and almond flakes to a pan and heat gently until all liquid has been absorbed and oats are soft. If adding flax you may need to add a bit more water.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool. Top with sweetener and almond flakes if using.
And that’s it! Enjoy 🙂
