Porridge is my favourite breakfast over the autumn/ winter season, as it warms you up and makes you ready to face the weather. How do I make it?
First of all I soak the oats overnight in rice milk, so all I need to do in the morning, is to simply heat it up. Then I always add a tablespoon of desiccated coconut for the good fat and extra fibre and a teaspoon of Ceylon cinnamon. As for the topping, the possibilities are endless! You can top it with blueberries, raspberries, cherries, grated apple or pear or mango. Then add a few of your favourite nuts on top... Easy and nutritious!
Soaking oats overnight before cooking makes them more digestible and improve nutritional benefits, by reducing the content of phytic acid, a major anti-nutrient in grains and legumes. Besides soaking saves you cooking time in the morning, which is always a good thing!
