Pumpkin Porridge

For cold mornings where life is a struggle and you need a little warmth and spice to bring you back...

Ingredients

  • 50g cooked pumpkin 
  • 75g oats
  • 250ml oat mylk*
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil 
  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey 
  • A dollop of coconut milk yoghurt (optional)

*An alternative, either dairy or non-dairy, would no doubt work just as well. 

Method

  1. Peel and cut the pumpkin taking all of the seeds out. 
  2. Steam the pumpkin pieces in a saucepan. Simply put the pumpkin pieces into your pan, cover with water and put the lid on. Steam until they are soft - this will take approximately 5 minutes. 
  3. Mash the pumpkin pieces with a fork, weigh out 50g and mix in the cinnamon and then set aside.
  4. Make your porridge. I make mine in a pan with non-dairy milk. I literally put the oats and mylk into a pan until it starts to bubble. I don't add any sweeteners or additional ingredients while the porridge is cooking - I always save that until the end.
  5. Once your porridge is cooked, mix in the pumpkin, honey and the coconut oil. If you fancy, you could always add more cinnamon for extra spice.
  6. Pour into your bowl.
  7. Sprinkle with your favourite toppings.

I used almond butter, a tangerine and cacao nibs.

Any left over pumpkin can be placed in the fridge and used later for more yumminess. 

Enjoy :)
