Hello! I plan to share my recipe ideas more regularly on the blog, as I usually create a lot of recipes on a weekly basis but tend to share the images only on Instagram and not on the website. Hopefully I will get quicker at posting and sharing recipes and will be able to manage it. Today I will be sharing with you one of my new favourite breakfast recipe ideas of carrot turmeric porridge.

I recently came upon the idea of adding vegetable to the milk before using the milk to make a porridge. This was something my dear friend Katja from Instagram (@healthnut_berlin) does often when making her porridge bowls. I thought this was a great way to sneak in some vegetables to your breakfast bowl. Breakfast bowls tend to either focus on the grain or too much fruit or sweetener. This recipe for a carrot turmeric porridge, helps make your regular porridge bowl more nourishing and interesting.

This carrot turmeric porridge is vegan and dairy free as I have used walnut milk to make it. Feel free to use any kind of milk of your choice. I find my homemade walnut milk another fun way to add nuts into your diet and gives a wonderful depth of flavour to your porridge bowl. I have also used carrots as the vegetable for this porridge bowl. I created versions of this recipe with beetroot as well. Feel free to add your favourite vegetable. I think organic courgette and bell peppers would make a great addition as well as any organic fresh greens.

I wanted to add some warmth and colour to this carrot turmeric porridge. Hence I added a mix of turmeric powder, black pepper powder and cinnamon powder. This warming spice trio gives an added flavour dimension to this breakfast bowl and makes it perfect for a chilly morning.

What other vegetable and spice flavour combination can you think of to make a more nourishing porridge bowl? Let me know and I will try creating it for you! If you are interested in more breakfast bowl ideas then do give a try to my Blueberry Chia Pudding recipe or my Nice cream Breakfast Parfait.
