I love a warm yummy bowl of porridge in the morning even when its warm outside. Oatmeal use to be my go to breakfast meal but at this time in my life my body doesn’t digest oats very well. I came up with this recipe as an alternative to gluten based porridge.
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 – 2 tsp. ghee
1/2 cup coconut milk (or any nut or dairy milk will do)
2 tbsp of nut butter (I use almond butter for its sweetness and creaminess)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp cardamom
dash of sea salt
sweetener of choice. I use coconut palm sugar for its low glycemic index
Add all ingredients into a small saucepan and heat to desired temperature.
Nuts, berries, shredded coconut, etc.
How thick you want your porridge will determine if you use less or more of the milk. The spices can be increased or decreased depending on your taste. Cinnamon helps lower blood sugar levels and makes digestion easier. Cloves also helps digestion, the liver and has anti-bacterial properties. Cardamom is good for cardiovascular health and is an anti-carcinogen.
