Recipe: Porridge with Tahini & Figs


Hello & Hallo,

Brown Rice & Oat Porridge with Tahini & Figs

Porridge with Tahini & Figs

As mentioned before — I LOVE porridge🥣 😋! It is warming, keeps you full for a long time & just makes me happy. Recently I have been playing with adding not just oats but other grains & flakes like quinoa, buckwheat & brown rice.

The Brown Rice & Oat Porridge with Tahini & Figs is my new favourite! It feels like such a treat & is the prefect start to the day!


Read on for the recipe…

What you need (1 serving ca 260 calories): 

  • 10g Whole Rolled Oats (not the quick oats but whole oats — I use Sainsbury’s)
  • 25g Organic Brown Rice Flakes (I got mine at Planet Organic)
  • 50ml Milk of choice (I used Plenish Cashew Milk)
  • Spices to taste — I added ½ tsp cinnamon & a pinch of ground cardamom
  • Sweetener of choice (optional — I used Agave)
  • 1 fresh Figs
  • ½ tsp Tahini
  • 1 tsp Sunflower Seeds


What to do:

  • Toast the sunflower seeds in a dry saucepan until they are light golden. Set aside.
  • In the same saucepan toast the oats & brown rice flakes until they are golden or browned. This give the porridge a really rich & roasted taste.
  • Add ½ cup water & let the porridge bubble & ticken. Cook for 5 minutes. Add water as & when needed.
  • Once the porridge is getting to the consistency you like add the milk & spices. Cook for another couple of minutes.
  • While the porridge cooks cut your fig. I sliced 3 thin slices (as we say in German “das Auge isst mit” / “they eye eats as well”) & coped the rest of the fig.
  • When the porridge is ready pour it into a bowl. Top with the tahini, fig & roasted sunflower seeds.

Your done! Dig in 😃

This porridge is also really nice with sesame seeds instead of sunflower seeds. I used water & milk as I think this makes the consistency nice. I like my porridge not too runny.

What is your favourite porridge & topping?

Guten Appetit & Enjoy!
