I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas that are quick, easy and have plenty of gluten free starch/carbohydrates…and that I tolerate. Not an easy task.

I decided to experiment with porridge/oatmeal. I can’t eat oats. But I can eat other gf grains. So I mixed up a quick teff porridge the other day. It was so easy and so good! It actually tastes a lot like oatmeal.

I also soaked the flour to make it easier to digest.

You do have to eat it fresh or it will get kind of thick/gelatinous. Although if you let it sit it might solidify enough to be like a cereal bar 🙂  Or like baked oatmeal. I’ll have to try that sometime.

I used coconut milk and maple syrup in my porridge. You can use whatever liquid and sweetener you like.

Soaked Teff Porridge
serves 1

1/4 cup teff flour
1/4 cup warm liquid – water + 2 tsp. lemon juice
3 tsp. maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut milk
pinch sea salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Mix teff, water and lemon juice. Cover and let sit 7-24 hours.

In a small saucepan mix the teff mixture and the remaining ingredients. Cook until hot and well mixed (a few minutes), stirring. Adjust sweetness (syrup/honey/sugar), spices and thickness (coconut milk/milk/cream) to taste. Serve immediately with extra coconut milk.
