Now that it is fall it's time to embrace warming foods like soups and porridge (hot cereal). As a Canadian girl, porridge is in my DNA. That's probably why the famed Instapot (a Canadian design) has a "porridge" function button, haha. My mum often made us porridge for breakfast & then when I was old enough I made it myself. As I got older I never lost my love for porridge but as someone who tries to limit the amount of grains in her diet I wanted to find a way to enjoy porridge without the grains. This is loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, protein & dietary fibre. The list of toppings are endless! Everything from non dairy milk, fruit, nut/seed butters, cacao nibs, maple syrup, grape nectar, chocolate etc.. I actually was able to top mine with fall raspberries from my bushes. This filled me for hours, and was so satisfying. I tend to eat a fairly large breakfast as I am often not much of a lunch person. While I indicated this was 1 serving, for many this would be enough porridge for 2 persons.
