I know it’s Spring, but i’m holding on to the porridge dream for a little longer.
This recipe actually happened by accident. It was lunchtime and I was at home with an empty fridge. Too hungry to venture out, I was forced to get creative.
The only things I could see were carrots and oats.
I’d heard of people mixing the two but had never really experimented myself.
Anywho, I tried it. I think it turned out pretty damn delicious, it reminded me of a carrot cake.
It feels slightly rebellious eating porridge at lunchtime, so I think it made this recipe even more enjoyable.
Here it is…
1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
1 carrot (finely grated)
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp chia seeds
3 dates (chopped)
1 tsp raw coconut oil
A hunk of fresh ginger finely grated (could also use ground)
1 pinch each of cinnamon & nutmeg.
1 tsp honey or coconut sugar (or which ever sweetener you like)
2 tbsp shredded coconut (optional for topping)
~ Combine oats, carrot, tahini, chia, coconut oil, dates & ginger with a large cup of water and let simmer on the stove top until combined and smooth.
~ Once smooth and thick, add the spices, sweetener of choice and coconut on top. Pour into a large bowl and enjoy yourself an interesting and satisfying bowl of goodness.
