Recipe: Coconut Millet Porridge

Hello & Hallo,

It’s time for another porridge recipe – coconut millet porridge πŸ₯₯πŸ₯£ ! I had some millet leftover from dinner β€” what better way to use it than make porridge with it!

Here is how…

Porridge is amazing but doesn’t always need to be made from oats. Millet is a naturally gluten-free grain which reminds me a bit of couscous. It is great with salads or as an alternative to rice & quinoa.

Coconut Millet Porridge

What you need:

  • 1 cup cooked millet
  • 2 tsp desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp Coconut cream (or more if you want it creamier)
  • Β½ cup water
  • Pinch of ground cardamom
  • Sweetener of choice (optional) β€” I used Β½ tsp agave syrup
  • Β½ cup of mango (or any other fruit you fancy)

What to do:

  • Heat a small saucepan to medium heat. Add the desiccated coconut & toast until gold brown.
  • Remove the coconut & place the saucepan back on the hob.
  • Add the millet & water to the saucepan. When the water is absorbed add the coconut cream, cardamom & sweetener (if using).
  • While the porridge is simmering cut the mango / fruit into pieces.
  • Once the porridge has thickened pour it into a bowl. Add the mango & sprinkle with the toasted coconut.

This porridge is rich, subtly sweet & so satisfying. I will make β€˜too much’ millet more often πŸ˜‰

Let me know if you try it & what you think πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

Guten Appetit & Enjoy!
