This low FODMAP porridge recipe is great if you want to mix up your breakfast routine, or if you struggle to tolerate oats. A great source of fibre and high in protein, quinoa is an awesome grain to have for brekky, and will keep you full and energised throughout the day. It’s taken from my cookbook, The FODMAP Friendly Kitchen, which is out today!!
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks and I want to thank you for all your support, love and wonderful messages. I’m thrilled to say I’ve been featured in The Evening Standard, listed as one of the 10 best healthy eating cookbooks of 2017 and in The Telegraph’s Eat well in 2017: the best new (surprisingly sensible) diet books. Over on Borough Market’s website, you can find me talking about my experience writing the book too, along with two more recipes from the book that I’m so excited to share, a buckwheat risotto with macadamia cream and glazed blood orange doughnuts.
Keep your eyes peeled for more exciting things to come – but in the meantime – I can’t wait to hear what you think! Backed by the official FODMAP Friendly team, the book has over 100 quick, easy and modern recipes for those of you that have run out of answers and feel ‘you can’t eat anything’. I really want to show you that if you do have food intolerances or a sensitive gut, you shouldn’t have to feel restricted in what you can eat.
So please drop me a line, or tag me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with #fodmapfriendlykitchen and your comments and/or pictures of the book! I really am so excited to share it with you and get the FODMAP message out there.
And if you did want to make the recipe! Simmered to creamy dreamy perfection, this quinoa porridge is topped with plump strawberries, fragrant lavender buds and a drizzle of maple syrup. As strawberries aren’t in season at the moment, you could also use forced rhubarb – just as delicious and FODMAP-friendly too. Stew in a pan with a little sugar and a splash of water for 6-7 minutes, or until soft, before adding the lavender and maple syrup as detailed below.
