High Fibre Spelt Porridge
- Makes 1 portion
- Ready in 7 minutes
- 360 kcal per portion
- 4 tbsp of organic spelt flakes
- 150 ml water or soy milk
- 300 g (approx.) fruit of your choice
- 1 tsp. ground flax seeds
- 1 tsp. psyllium husk
- 1 tsp. flaked almonds
- A pinch of vanilla and cinnamon
Firstly, chop up some fruit into small chunks. Pour the water or soy milk over the spelt flakes and slowly warm on a medium heat until the liquid has been absorbed. Stir often, in order to avoid the mixture catching on the bottom of the pan.
Add the ground flax seeds and cinnamon to the mixture, then top your porridge with some fruit. The psyllium husk should be added just before eating, otherwise the porridge will turn to a very thick mixture.
The ingredients can be varied as you like! Spelt flakes can be replaced with oats or tiger nut flakes, and you can choose whatever kind of fruit you like to top your porridge, dried or fresh.
To round off your porridge, add a sprinkle of vanilla or cinnamon on top, or even cardamom. Cardamom is very popular in ayurvedic cuisine – and not without reason. In addition to antispasmodic and circulation promoting effects, it is also said to alleviate digestive problems, headaches and menstrual cramps, to improve memory and even to stimulate metabolism, acting as a fat burner. A true all-rounder!
Our tip: The combination of banana and apple sauce is our absolute favourite. The banana adds a little sweetness to the porridge, while the apple sauce gives it a creamy consistency.
