  • Healing turmeric porridge
  • 110 g / ½ cup millet
  • 250 ml / 1 cup water
  • 160 ml / ⅔ cup plant-based milk, I used thick oat milk (used in coffee)
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • My additions:
  • 1 ripe & sweet pear (you can also use a ripe banana)
  • + ¼ cup of plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • Warm berries
  • 200 g / 7 oz mixed berries such as blueberries, raspberries (I also used black currants and strawberries)
  • ½ vanilla bean, scraped or ½ tsp ground vanilla
  • My addition: anise seeds to give a lovely flavor
  • Serve porridge with warm berries and dollop of coconut yogurt
  • Chopped nuts for crunch (which I forgot :) )
  • Optional: herbs or micro greens
  1. Place millet and water in a pan and bring to the boil. Let simmer for about 5 min until millet thickens so that almost no liquid is left.
  2. Add milk, turmeric, pepper and coconut oil and bring to the boil. If you want to make the porridge like I did, also add smashed pear (or banana), cinnamon and pinch of salt. Let simmer in low heat until you get a thick golden porridge, for about 10 minutes. Turn off heat, add a lid on and let set for about 5 minutes.
  3. Make the warm berries while the porridge is simmering: add all berries and spices to a pan and cook in low heat until berries soften and get syrupy.
  4. Serve porridge with warm berries, coconut yogurt, and additional toppings of choice.
  5. Enjoy this healing happy food :)
