Breakfast Recipes Method
1. Start by soaking the oats in boiling water, in a small pan; pour the water about 1cm above the oats.
2. Now peel the carrots and then grate the carrot and apple separately and set aside. Once the oats have absorbed the water, add the cinnamon, carrot, apple, nutmeg, ginger, salt, maple syrup, raisins, and almond milk.
3. Stir the ingredients, and cook on low heat until the mixture thickens and becomes creamy. Once you get your desired consistency and the carrot pieces have softened, remove them from the heat.
4. Serve in two bowls, topping with a splash of honey, a blob of yogurt, and a handful of chopped nuts.
Did you know Ginger has many health benefits; it is a highly effective digestive aid and carminative ingredient. By increasing the production of digestive fluids and saliva, ginger helps to relieve flatulence, indigestion as well and stomach cramps. Ginger is also anti-bacterial and an anti-inflammatory, easing pain in inflamed joints or arthritic conditions.
Soak the oats in the ingredients and milk and place them in the fridge before you go to bed, then pick up the recipe from No3 in the morning. The oats will be more nutritious after having soaked overnight, and the flavors will be more intense and creamy.
