nut milk porridge with berries
Porridge (also spelled porage, porrige, parritch) is a food made by boiling ground, crushed or chopped starchy plants—typically grain—in water or milk. It is often cooked or served with flavorings such as sugar, honey, syrup, etc. to make a sweet cereal or mixed with spices, vegetables, etc. to make a savoury dish. It is usually served hot in a bowl.
A bowl of these humble oats is not only warming, but deliciously filling and a great source of energy!
And I just recently got a huge fan of preparing porridge in the morning. It's a very convenient and versatile breakfast.
Another good thing about porridge is, that there are millions of variations. You can add to it whatever you fancy!
Simple berry oatmeal porridge
+ 1 cup oats (I use fine ones) (ca. 90g)
+ 1,5 cups water
+ 1 cup nut milk (I like to use almond or cashew milk with porridge)
+ 1 pinch of salt
+ 1/2 tea spoon ground vanilla (optional)
+ 1/2 cup frozen berries of your choice
+ fresh fruit
+ extra nut milk (cashew or almond milk taste amazing)
+ 1 table spoon nut butter (I used a crunchy almond butter)
+ (roasted) nuts, this time I used hazelnuts (from Pakka)
place the oats, water, nut milk, salt and vanilla in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer on medium to low heat. Stir well to combine. Let simmer till the water ist just absorbed and the porridge has thickened. This takes around 5-10 minutes. Add fruit and serve with more nut milk and toppings of your choice!
