Millet Porridge = Soul Food

Porridge is pure soul food for me. It is like having the highlight of the day already in the morning, as it is so yummy. It provides a lot of energy to start the day and always brings some variety to your breakfast, as you can mix and match the toppings as you wish. Pick the topping depending on the season and your preferences. My favorite combination is cacao nibs, seasonal berries, and hemp seeds. But I can also recommend apple sauce, some jam or self-made granola.

The usual recipes are using oats for the porridge, which are super healthy, as they contain a lot of important nutrients. Unfortunately, I have an intolerance against oats, so I started to experiment with different grains for the porridge – and I like millets the best.
