Notes from the Rainforest Foods kitchen - a nutritionally complete and delicious way to start the day
Porridge is rarely given a dash of colour, but there is no reason why it shouldn't be. This version of the traditional breakfast provides energy, along with a healthy dose of omega fats. Thanks to Spirulina it also contains almost every nutrient our bodies require, and is a fresh, healthy shade of green.
75g/2.5oz oats. Gluten-free oats are available in health food shops.
250ml/9 fl.oz water
0.5tsp cinnamon powder
1tbsp coconut oil, melted
A handful of nuts, chopped
Put the oats, nut milk and cinnamon powder in a pan and stir constantly as you cook it on a low-medium heat. Add the water a little at a time, keeping the mixture from becoming too thick and sticky. After 2-3 minutes you will have a creamy porridge.
Stir the Spirulina powder into the melted oil.
Serve in bowls, topped with the oil and a handful of chopped nuts. A spoon of honey is another pleasant addition.
