Homemade Porridge a la Fitgourmet!

Homemade Porridge a la Fitgourmet!

I am from a culture of big breakfast with feta, tomato, olives, bread, egg…and the list goes on and never had porridge until about quite recently. I almost rejected this mashed-looking, warm strange mixture as a breakfast!
Over the years, I realized that my digestion is not so strong for these heavy and raw food, especially in autumn and winter. I first tried the mueslis and granolas, which I loved and then I met Ayurveda and learned that our digestion follows the energy of sun, that it has its highest energy at lunch and lowest in the morning and evenings. Since then, I have been trying different versions of porridges adding whatever I have at home.
I hope you enjoy this super delicious and nutritious breakfast, warm and soft and so easy to digest and get you going during the day.

Equipment

  • pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Whole Oats or quiona/millet flakes
  • 1/2 tbsp Ghee or coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Flax Seeds Freshly grounded
  • 1 tbsp Almonds butter Optional
  • 1/2 cup Fruits like strawberries, blue redberries (Or Driedand soaked overnight fruits like 2 dates / apricot / figs / goji berries)
  • 1 – 1.5 cup Plant Milk (almond, rice, oat milk)
  • 1/4 tbsp Cinnamon and cardamom
  • A Pinch of Salt
  • 1 tbs sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbs pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbs Maple or date syrup

Instructions
 

  • Melt the oil in a small pan and add the oats and seeds toasting them a few minutes
  • Add salt and half of the plant milk slowly, stirring all the time. Add more milk as it cooks and according to your choice of consistency. I like it moist but not too wet!
  • Add spices, berries and mix well
  • Cook about 10-15 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour your cooked porridge into a bowl and top with almond butter and the berry jam if you made it separately. You can add some date or maple syrup if you need a more sweet taste.
  • You can make your own berry jam with chia seeds and keep them in a jar for a few weeks and so just add this to your oats. Here is the recipe.
  • Making almond milk at home is so easy, just check here. I don’t drain the milk at the end now, I use it with the almond particles in it and this way I think I benefit even more taste wise and nutrition wise!

    Excellent …

    Question – in ayurvedic diet ; it is advised not to mix milk with fruits .
    Or eat fruits alone – what do you think about this ?
