Chia Seed Porridge
Strictly speaking, this is an overnight recipe but it is no-cook and the prep is almost instant, so bear with us! Basically, all you need to do is stir in the ingredients, fridge ’em – and there you go: an instant breakfast when you open the fridge door the following morning.
If you’ve not come across chia seeds yet, it’s touted as one of those ‘new’ superfoods but of course, they’ve been around for a long time! These tiny little seeds are a great source of nutrients – protein, calcium, iron and magnesium in particular – as well being a good source of healthy fats – and they are widely available now.
NB Allergy alert
Chia seeds are safe for those with regular nut allergies unless they have a specific allergy to chia seeds themselves! However, those with tree nut allergies (eg peanuts/coconut) need to buy their chia from companies who don’t use mixed production lines. Whole chia seeds are probably the safest. Pressed or ground chia seeds may be processed in a factory that also processes tree nuts or coconut and contaminate the processed chia. This contamination will trigger a severe allergic reaction in those who have a severe allergy to tree nuts or coconut.
