Bulgur-Oat Porridge

Bulgur-Oat Porridge is a nutritious and wholesome breakfast option that combines the goodness of oats and bulgur. Ready just in a few minutes, it’s a convenient choice for a satisfying and nutritious breakfast.

The base of this porridge consists of oats, bulgur and a plant-based mink. Oats are renowned for their high fiber content, which promotes digestive health and helps to keep you feeling full throughout the morning. Bulgur, a whole grain wheat product, adds a delightful sweetness and contributes additional fiber, vitamins, and minerals to the porridge.

Enhance both nutrition and texture by incorporating a variety of nuts, seeds, and fruits. Consider adding chia seeds and flax meal, which provide a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Brazilian nuts offer a dose of selenium, while hemp seeds contribute plant-based protein and essential minerals. For an extra nutritional boost, sprinkle in pumpkin seeds, known for their zinc content and additional nutrients. To add a touch of natural sweetness, include a cup of juicy berries, brimming with vitamins and antioxidants. These additions will take your porridge to the next level, both in flavor and nutritional value.

  1. Make the oatmeal
    In a medium saucepan or pot, heat the plant-based milk until it begins to simmer. Add the rolled oats and bulgur, stirring to combine. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 10 minutes, or until the oats have absorbed most of the liquid and the mixture has thickened slightly. Remember to stir occasionally.
    Tip: You can add sweetness to your liking by incorporating maple syrup.
  2. To serve
    Divide the oatmeal into serving bowls and top with fresh fruits, nuts and seeds.
  3. How to store
    If you have any leftovers, they can be stored in an airtight container and reheated on the stovetop. To prevent sticking, make sure to drizzle the porridge with a small amount of milk or water, which will help it cook faster.
