AyurvedaAyurvedic Porridge

Ayurvedic Porridge

I have never been a porridge kinda girl but this is hands down the best porridge I have ever eaten. It has revolutionised my breakfast repertoire! 

This recipe is from Vital Veda and I highly recommend you follow Dylan Smith on social media and listen to the Vital Veda podcast he shares a wealth of knowledge that your body, mind and soul will love you for. 

Ayurvedic Porridge Ingredients:

  • Oats, coarse semolina, rice flakes or quinoa flakes –  1/3 – 1/2 cup
  • 1 Tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp raw sugar (optional)
  • handful of raisins/sultanas
  • handful of one type of crushed nuts (almonds, macadamia or cashew)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cardamom powder


  1. Put ghee in a pot, let it heat.
  2. Add 1/3 – 1/2 cup of coarse semolina or oats or rice flakes or quinoa flakes etc.
  3. Toast (fry) grains in the ghee to infuse ghee into the grains. – this lightens the grains and makes them easier to digest.
  4. Add approx. 1-cup of boiling water, stir and cook. – Be aware of porridge splatter, continually stir to avoid lumps and splatter.
  5. Add 1 tsp or tbsp of raw sugar (optional) + handful of raisins + handful of soaked and crushed almonds or cashews (optional for more protein and a filling breakfast) and stir.
  6. Add some cows milk (optional). If adding milk can initially add less boiling water.
  7. Add 1/4-1/2 tsp cinnamon powder + 1/4-1/2 tsp cardamom powder (cardamom and cinnamon removes morning sluggishness).
  8. Enjoy!
