Have you ever tried orridge, a traditional Anglo-Saxon breakfast dish? No one can resist the fragrant and hearty breakfast during the winter!
Porridge is the ideal breakfast for the morning.
Nutritionists have also endorsed porridge as the ideal breakfast food, recommending strictly wholemeal oatflakes cooked with cow’s or vegetable milk and enriched with fresh fruit.
Just don’t add refined sugars if you want a king’s breakfast that will also keep your blood sugar levels in check.
- 1 cup oatflakes
- 2 cups of milk (of your choice)
- maple syrup
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons whole cane sugar
- Raisins, almonds or other dried fruits to taste
- To begin, heat the oatflakes in a saucepan with the milk of your choice. The dose is always the same: 1 serving/cup of flakes + 2 servings/cups of liquids = 1 serving/cup of flakes + 2 servings/cups of liquids = 1 serving/cup of flakes + 2 servings/cups of liquid
- Cook for about 4-5 minutes after it comes to a boil, stirring constantly so the flakes don't burn.
You have the option of adding raisins and dried fruits both during and after cooking.
- The oat soup is almost done! The flakes and milk will become creamy in a few minutes, and the porridge will be ready!
Meanwhile, make the caramelized bananas: in a saucepan, combine the bananas cut into washers and the sugar. Cook over very low heat with the lid for a few minutes, or until the sugar melts.
- Once cooked, you can sweeten the porridge to your liking: today, we added a tablespoon of maple syrup and then topped it with the caramelized bananas!
Add a few flax seeds to make the dish even healthier.
- You can keep this porridge in the refrigerator for a couple of days in a food container. When you heat it up, add a few tablespoons of water or vegetable milk to make it creamy again.
