Porridge with Flax seeds, Berries and Banana
A bountiful, energising vegan breakfast to boost your mood!
It’s also easy to add even more tasty and nutritious vegan goodies, eg cashews or other nuts; dried fruit such as raisins, chopped figs or apricots; sunflower or pumpkin seeds…
We’ve offered two vegan versions: porridge from scratch – very economical, quick and easy, especially if you soak overnight – and also the individual packets which take only 2 minutes to microwave. You choose! Bags of porridge range from value versions to posher organic ranges. Again, make your choice according to budget and availability.
Ready ground linseed (flax seed) is very cheap from Aldi. Alternatively, buy whole seeds and grind them up in a small electric coffee or spice grinder. Whichever you choose, store in the fridge in an airtight container to keep it fresh.
* Nutritional information per serving. * Add more oats if you're physically active.
Optional extras / notes
Soaking the oats overnight in plant milk or water makes the porridge quicker to cook in the morning. If using the from scratch version, halve the quantities to make one portion. The instant sachets only serve 1.
Did you know that V30 is run by a charity?
We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
