Just a warning - my recipes tend to be very flexible.
Breakfast Porridge (great to wake up to on a cold morning)
2 cups whole grain - I like 1 cup steel cut oats, 1/2c quinoa, and 1/2c wheat, spelt, or rye berries for texture
6 cups water or nondairy milk
lots of cinnamon
Cook on low overnight. I've cooked as long as 8 hours.
fresh or frozen fruit
If using dried fruit I add it with the grains, if using fresh I stir it in before serving.
I rarely add sweetener if I use the banana. This makes enough for the week here. It's great leftover either reheated or add an egg and make a pancake.
