Soaked Porridge 

Standard

One thing you will soon learn about me is, I can be quite frugal.  Here is my fave porridge recipe. I’ve never liked oatmeal!! But this has a much better flavor than the quick oats, which I find bland and boring. The taste here can be altered by what you choose for the soak. So your flavor options are broad, which keeps you wanting more, which will save you money and soaking is actually much healthier for you. Since you have to prepare this the night before… you will be saving time in the morning!

BEST SOAKED PORRIDGE (nourishing traditions book) 

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup water

2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, whey, yogurt, or buttermilk …

Soak covered on counter overnight, for up to 24 hours. In the morning add 1 cup of water and 1 tsp sea salt. Simmer covered several minutes. Stir in 1-2 tbsp flax seed and let stand a few minutes.

 

Enjoy with butter or coconut oil with choice of sweetener and add ins such as raisins, chopped dates, berries, coconut, nuts,cinnamon, honey, more coconut oil 🙂 etc. And in this case..peaches ☺ 

 

Add finely chopped or blended dates to your favorite recipes, porridge, milk shakes, etc, to increase nutrients and decrease sugar consumption.

About Rita@everevolvingmama

Welcome! I'm glad to share some of what I've learned over the years with you. I try to learn new things often. Being mostly self taught usually means making a lot of mistakes first. In the kitchen this includes, baking with yeast, canning, fermenting, soaking, drying foods, grinding my own flour, making most things homemade, altering recipes to make them healthier, etc. I started sewing more complicated things, learned to knit and then taught the kids. Next was crocheting and then homeschooling. More adventures ahead...
