Polenta and Amaranth Porridge

Polenta and Amaranth Porridge

This is a great alternative to porridge oats. Not there is anything wrong with oats, but I am always looking for yummy, nutrient rich ways of diversify my diet and breakfast.

Wonderful and creamy in texture and lovely in taste, it goes well with pretty much anything! This time I decided to top it with desiccated coconut and cocoa nibs! Yum!

Polenta & Amaranth Porridge (1 portion)

  • 20g Polenta
  • 20g Amaranth
  • 20g Spelt
  • vanilla pod or extract to taste
  • 200ml Coconut milk (Almond milk or skimmed milk would work just as well)
  • 250ml water

    Method:
  • Place all ingredients in a pan and cook for about 30-40 minutes depending on thickness preference! Serve with preferred topping and Enjoy !

To make things easier in the morning, I've mixed 200g each of polenta, spelt and amaranth in a mason jar. 1 portion = 60g of the already mixed grains.
