Gluten free vegan porridge with rice flakes + extras...🍌

β€’5 Replies

Hi everyone.

Here's some of my home made porridge I cannot eat oats so any porridge or gruel that I eat must use an alternative, rice flakes works well as does quinoa flakes you can also use coarse polenta ground rice gari (coarse tapioca) and it doesn't matter which you use you want around 35/50g to 350ml of liquid. With rice flakes I leave them to soak overnight. And I used coconut milk.

I added chia seeds sultanas which I add before I cook so they are nice and soft and I topped with sliced banana and raspberries.

I also really like a pudding especially in the winter so make many puddings with the same recipe and different grains and fruits...😊

I have to say I like almost everything but one thing I don’t like is quinoa but I’m going to persevere with it. I do rinse it before use and will make porridge with it next week and see how that is. I think the porridge would be nicer with the flakes if I can track some down at the health food shop.
