Power Porridge

28 Aug

There is nothing that tastes better when its cold outside and I get home from the gym then a bowl of power porridge.  This is a recipe adapted from my favourite chef, Teresa Cutter, The Healthy Chef.  I love this porridge and it is so easy to do in the thermomix!  I can be a bit time poor in the morning going to the gym and getting to work on time so I  let the thermomix do the work while I have a shower.

To serve 1, you will need:

1 x small apple

1 x small banana

20g oats

20g quinoa flakes

sprinkle of linseeds

teaspoon of cinnamon

100g milk

100g filtered water

drizzle of honey

First, place your quartered apple into the TM bowl and chop for 3-4 seconds on speed 4.  Add half a MC of water and cook for 2 mins, 100 degrees on speed 2.

Next, add your oats, quinoa flakes, linseed, cinnamon, milk and water and cook for 7-8 mins, 100 degrees, reverse on speed 2.

In the last 30 seconds, add your chopped banana and drizzle with honey.

If you don’t have a thermomix, you can of course do this in a saucepan.

You won’t want to eat plain porridge again after trying this!

    Em, I am loving your blogs! This one is great. I was wondering if you have any preferred stores for buying your cooking needs – I don’t suppose Woolworths supplies everything and if they do it probably costs a fortune!

      Thanks Jenni! I go to a few different stores including Manna Wholefoods in Freo and Peaches in South Freo. I always check out the organic isles in every supermarket I go into and Woolies does have a good range these days. I also belong to a co-op which is on my list to blog about! Go and check out Manna and make sure you go around lunchtime so you can have some lunch while you are there!!
