Oat Porridge with sesame and coconut
Ayurveda Porridge with nuts and coconut
INGREDIENTS
  • 50 g oat flakes
  • 15 almonds, soaked overnight 
  • 8 dates
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 250 ml plant milk, e.g. almond milk or coconut drink (not milk)
  • 1 tbsp coconut chips
  • 1 tsp black sesame seeds
METHOD
  1. Pit dates and chop into small cubes. Peel the almonds. In a blender, grind the almonds and oatmeal to a fine flour. 
  2. In a saucepan, heat the plant milk and add cardamom, cinnamon and salt. Stir the oat almond flour and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Stir in dates and syrup. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes until it’s creamy.
  3. In a pan, carefully toast the coconut chips and sesame seeds (without oil). 
  4. Put the oat porridge in a bowl and top with coconut chips and black sesame seeds.

Cashew nuts or hazelnuts instead of almonds taste great too!

GOOD TO KNOW
  • Grounded oats are easier to digest than wheat or corn. Cinnamon and cardamom make the porridge lighter and help digestion.
  • If you are fighting Kapha-Heaviness, leave out the almonds – they can be a bit heavy for your digestion.
