Warming Porridge With Chai Aromatics

What's great about it

This is a wonderful nourishing breakfast to help promote energy and vitality. I love porridge – it brings comfort and satisfaction to every mouthful! I love to add warming aromatics such as cinnamon and ginger that makes my porridge absolutely irresistible. Be generous with your milk as this will make your porridge creamy and delicious. See notes + inspiration for my tips to boost protein.

Ingredients

Serves 2

 

1 cup cooked short-grain brown rice (see notes) 

1  cup milk (your choice)

1/2 cup water

1 cinnamon stick or a generous pinch of ground cinnamon (see notes)

a thin slice of fresh ginger or a pinch of powdered ginger (see notes)

½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste

1 teaspoon ground flaxseed

a little honey or organic maple syrup to serve

Method

 

  1. Combine brown rice, milk, water, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla in a pot.
  2. Heat gently and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add a little extra milk if necessary. (Your porridge should be silky and creamy.)
  4. Serve topped with flaxseed, honey and extra hot milk.

Notes and Inspiration

Use one teaspoon of Healthy Chef Chai Latte in place of cinnamon and ginger.

Add 1 tablespoon Healthy Chef Protein - Just combine first with 1/2 cup water or milk and mix through at the end of cooking.

Add 1 star anise or a few cloves.

Serve with hot milk on the side.

Serve with poached pear or Persian figs or ripe sliced banana.

Cooked quinoa or buckwheat can be used in place of the brown rice.
