This is a versatile recipe that makes a filling breakfast. Adapt it and make it your own!
Option #1: Use raw gluten-free oats. Soak equal amount oats and non-dairy milk in fridge overnight. In the morning, toss in your fave add-ins (see below).
Option #2: Use sprouted gluten-free grains, such as quinoa, buckwheat, millet or amaranth. Buy them already sprouted OR buy grains and sprout them yourself. See here for how to sprout grains (generally takes 2-3 days, so you might want to do a big batch). Once sprouted, you can then dry them. Best way is using a dehydrator: place a thin layer of grains on solid Teflex sheets and dry at 110°F 6-8 hrs or overnight. You could also try spreading your grains on cookie sheets lined with unbleached parchment paper at 300°F for 1-2 hours (keep an eye on them).
Option # 3: Use a cooked gluten-free grain, such as oats, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff or millet. Soak grains overnight, then rinse and cook before using add-ins (below). You can reheat leftovers too!
For all three options, the usual amount is 1/2, 2/3 or 3/4 cup of grain, depending on how big your appetite is that morning!
Now customize your cereal!
How to? Soak peas 8 hrs, then drain and leave in colander. Rinse peas well 2x a day until they have little tails. Dry them on a low setting on parchment lined baking sheets (300°F is OK but keep an eye on them) or use a dehydrator (110°F). Finally, grind them to a powder using a DRY high speed blender like the Vitamix and store the powder in a cool, dry place. Use 1-2 tsp (too much = overpowering).
How to? Make your own high fiber juice pulp powder by drying a thin layer of pulp leftover after making juice (any kind of juice) in a dehydrator at 110 °F on solid Teflex sheets OR drying on baking sheets lined with parchment paper at 300° F until dry; then grind to a powder in a dry high speed blender. Store in a cool, dry place in a glass container.
Tip: you can store your pulp in the freezer in parchment bags until you get a big amount. Then defrost and do several trays at once.
o nopal cactus to balance blood sugar
o grapefruit seed extract for candida/parasites (open capsule and add to porridge)
o 1/4 -1/2 tsp turmeric (antioxidant)
o 1/4-1/2 tsp mucuna (balances nerves)
o 1-2 tsp maca (balances hormones, energy enhancer)
o 1/2- 1 tsp triphala (supports digestion)
o Your own choice of herb to support your health (hidden in your porridge, it can help to hide the taste)!
How to? 1 cup soaked nuts OR 1 cup sprouted grains to 1 cup water. Blend in high speed blender like the Vitamix, pour into a nut milk bag and strain out liquid. Keep leftovers in fridge.
Variation: use 2 cups water instead and for an even thinner milk, use 3 cups water instead.
Be creative and have fun! You can name your cereal or just throw things together and eat on up!
Cat says: To make this FF and NutF, don't add in any oils, nuts or seeds.
FYI: Maca is in the cruciferous family, so be aware if you feel funny when you take it!
