Yummy Spicey Pumpkin Porridge

This is the most yummy breakfast for the whole family that meets all our needs: taste, texture, a broad range of nutrients with a warming and sustained release of energy and wonderful feeling of satisfaction.

The key to make this quick and easy is to use pre cooked pumpkin and oatmeal (or suitable replacements) nuts and seed soaked separately overnight. If you wish to be really organised, boil the pumpkin in suitable portion sizes and freeze until needed, taking out the night before to thaw. Use portion sizes that make sense for the number of people who you are cooking for.

  • Cook your oatmeal or cereal of choice as usual over a moderate heat.
  • Add pumpkin as pieces or mashed and stir gently.
  • Sprinkle in a handful of raisins and a teaspoon of coconut oil and keep gently stirring.
  • Grate and add a teaspoon to a spoonful of fresh ginger, depending on the enthusiasm of the family!
  • When ready add a teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • Optional – soak chia or any seeds over night in water and add to the porridge just before serving so that they are not damaged by cooking.
  • Serve with cream or natural yoghurt.

Enjoy and be energised.
