Carrot slices/ rainbow slices

Rainbow slices: with beetroot, carrot, red and white cabbageThis is a recipe I have been meaning to write up for ages.

I make it for almost every weekend, or for long journeys.  So that where ever we go we have a healthy snack. breakfast/ lunch/ dinner that everyone loves.

Oats are full of B vitamins, so great for post-natal depression.

This is also quite a grounding, nourishing and fulfilling food to take on flights.

I used to make it on Sunday when the twins were at school, for packed lunch, and even the teachers asked for the recipe :)

Whenever anyone has smelled it cooking, or tasted some, they have asked for the recipe.  I have not yet met someone who hasn’t enjoyed it, so hope you will too!

Vegan Superfood Porridge

imagesThis is a winter-warmer recipe for breakfast.  Oats are a good source of B vitamins and help combat winter blues.

Hemp is a good source of omega-3s for vegans, and hemp milk a great alternative to dairy as is the only vegan milk I have found that can be used in tea or coffee (without curdling).

  • I soak organic porridge oats in filtered water the night before.  This makes the texture creamier.
  • I use hemp milk, which I heat, the drain, rinse and add the oats.
  • I add a teaspoon and a half of ground, sprouted flax powder and a sprinkling of hemp seeds (after porridge has slightly cooled).
  • I then add either chopped strawberries, blueberries or banana.
  • I sometimes refrigerate leftovers and serve after school with some yoghurt.
  • Sprinkled dried fruit or carob powder (or cacao) for a treat :)
