Indian Spiced Porridge (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan)

It’s been almost one year since I posted a recipe for the Carrot Cake Porridge. Talking about chilly mornings and comfort foods. Well, here we are again. Slowly, but surely the winter is coming to the Gold Coast. And even though the weather is still absolutely stunning during the day, the mornings are getting a bit colder. And that means my body is craving all the comfort food. All the time… But that’s a different story. Anyway, I also have to wake up pretty early for my work and can’t really skip breakfast, so it needs to be something easy to digest. And I think porridge just ticks all the boxes. And this Indian Spiced Porridge (Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan) is the bomb at the moment. No sugar, no gluten, just good things like seeds and coconut cream, beautiful warming spices and of course some veggies too. Because that wouldn’t be me if I didn’t try to sneak some veg into everything.

The peckish girl:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • 1½ cup water
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 2 tbsp cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup flaxseed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • ¼ tsp ground allspice
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 2 tsp turmeric
Instructions
  1. Pour the coconut cream and water in a pot and place it over medium heat.
  2. Add all the spices and stir them in. Then add the grated zucchini. If you don’t like the colour of the porridge, then peel the zucchini before grating it.
  3. Bring everything to a boil and lower the heat. Simmer the mix for 10 minutes.
  4. At this point you can also blend the mix, so nobody would notice any veggies in there and it would also make it smooth and creamy.
  5. Then stir in the flaxseed meal and psyllium husk slowly with a whisk.
  6. Add the chia seeds, desiccated coconut, sunflower seeds and pepitas.
  7. Simmer for 10 more minutes, stirring thoroughly with a whisk.
  8. Serve for example with coconut yoghurt (I used Pure n Free natural yoghurt, the best coconut yoghurt ever), berries and shredded coconut.
