Porridge is great and very practical, especially if you want to stay full for a long time in the morning. Of course, it’s even more fun when it has a wonderfully bright color, which brightens up your mood and helps waking up at 6 in the morning.
This porridge here is made with water only. Why? Of course, you can also make it with the same amount of a vegetable milk of your choice. But with water the porridge will taste as great as with milk. This might also be due to the turmeric, the cinnamon and the lemon zest. Try it and I promise – you’ll love it! For everyone who has Lidl nearby, I have a secret insider tip: You can get the pecans there relatively cheaply and in large portions. For everyone else, you might want to have a look here. I also order these pecans every now and then and I think, tastewise they are outstanding, too.
With this breakfast you don’t get hungry until noon. If I eat breakfast e.g. at 7 a.m., I’ll only get hungry at around half past 1. You can also take it to work in a mason jar and eat whenever you want. If it has already cooled down, it still tastes very good. Overnight oats, after all, are also mostly eaten cold.
Have great day, full of power, motivation and inspiration!
Tip: I mostly use the spices from “Altes Gewürzamt” (unfortunately, available only in Germany, maybe it’s possible to order it via Amazon here) because they are extremely aromatic and delicious. The price takes some getting used to, but the investment is absolutely worthwhile. The spice are so aromatic and intense, you’ll always need just a pinch and it can take a year or more until you’ve used up the whole tin. From Altes Gewürzamt, I only buy the spices that I really need and often use in my dishes. I can especially recommend the ground cinnamon flowers (looks actually like normal cinnamon, but tastes a lot more cinnamony and intense) for this breakfast. You only need a pinch, but you will notice the wonderful aroma immediately and the taste is a real delight.Print
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 teacups of water
1/2 lemon, zest
1 handful of pecans
1 piece of papaya
1/2 blood orange
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 pinch of white sesame
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1 tsp maple syrup (optional more)
- Fillet the orange and the blood orange (a video on how to do this can be found here). Cut the banana into slices, the papaya too. Wash the lemon and grate the zest.
- Add the oatmeal with the water and the turmeric to a saucepan and slowly stir over a medium heat so that it doesn’t get burned. This should only take a few minutes.
- Once the turmeric porridge is hot, add maple syrup and cinnamon to taste. Then stir in the lemon zest.
- Now transfer the porridge into a bowl, spread the fruit on top and decorate with pecans and sesame.
