This one is a little heart warmer. It’s cold here is Sydney at the moment, and while the sun is out, it’s lacking some serious heat. So for a satisfying, hearty breakfast (without piling on the pounds) try my new favourite Winter Chai Porridge. So quick to make, and seriously tasty. Make this the night before if you can’t spare 15 minutes in the morning, then simply reheat and devour.
½ teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon Natvia (stevia) or raw honey, to taste.
1 teaspoon pepitas
2 pieces uncrystallised ginger
1 tablespoon oats
2 walnuts, broken
1 tablespoon rinsed quinoa (rinsed)
1 teaspoon dried fruit
- Add all porridge ingredients in a saucepan over low heat and stir to combine.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, on a low heat for 12-15 minutes.
- Add a little water it your porridge gets too thick.
- Serve in your favourite bowl with topping sprinkled over.
Make this child-friendly by stir through some cacao nibs once cooked, and skip the topping.
If you are really pushed for time, microwave porridge ingredients for 2-3 minutes on high.
