Busyness and sleepless night are still the norms in this household, but I’ve become a master at coming up with quick and filling food for different situations in everyday life. This grainless raw porridge was inspired the morning that I realized I had forgotten to put the oat meal to soak the previous night and I needed to get some food into me fast. This raw porridge full of berries is soft and easily spoonable. The porridge was so quick to prepare that in the end I even had time to decorate the portion and take a few pictures too.
I couldn’t resist hiding into the porridge the two last sticks of cellery I had in the fridge. It might sound a bit odd, but I think that vegetables fit well into a smoothie (not to mention it’s a good way to increase your vegetable intake…), so why not put some in a raw berry porridge. The cellery actually adds a fresh taste to the porridge, but I bet that if one didn’t know that the porridge contains cellery one wouldn’t even taste it.
I enjoyed this porridge with a cardamom spiced coconut cream coffee, and suddenly the morning didn’t seem as gray as did before breakfast!
