When I tell people what one of my comfort foods is they look at me like I’m from another planet. I think it’s because the comfort food I’m talking about is porridge:
Porridge is warm and creamy and oh so delicious- I don’t know how you can’t consider it a comfort food! I’ve also recently discovered how perfect of a breakfast it is when you’re away from home. I brought gluten-free steel cut oats and buckwheat groats with me when I went on vacation to have the one morning we were in a hotel before reaching our vacation destination. It turns out that I enjoyed my concoction so much that I ended up eating it every single day:
There’s Em and I enjoying our breakfast on the patio in North Carolina. And here’s a close-up of the deliciousness that my bowl is filled with:
Raw Nut-Free Porridge
Creamy and sweet porridge topped with juicy fresh fruit, crunchy seeds and chewy dried fruits.
- 2 tbsp gluten-free steel cut oats
- 2 tbsp buckwheat groats
- 1 medium banana, mashed
- 2 tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk
- dash of cinnamon
- fresh and/or dried fruit
- hemp, flax, sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds
- roasted edamame
- Soak steel cut oats and buckwheat groats in water overnight (6 hrs minimum).
- Drain the soaked grains and place them in a bowl with the mashed banana.
- Add non-dairy milk and cinnamon and mix until combined.
- Add as many toppings as you desire and dig in!
I don’t know if you can notice, but in these pictures I used some almonds so it wasn’t actually nut-free. However, the base of this recipe is nut-free so I felt the title was justified 🙂 In the pictures the toppings I used were hemp seeds, strawberries and a mixture roasted edamame, nuts and dried fruits. That mixture was a packaged mix that I came across while in North Carolina and fell in love with! I mildly regret not buying a package to bring back to Toronto with me!
