Creamy tahini vegetable porridge

Good morning all and a quick post to say that I have concocted one of my best porridge combos to date.
I just don’t feel complete without at least one serving of veg with my breakfast. Usually I have a green smoothie which has heaps of veg in it but on a cold rainy morning, porridge is usually where it’s at, so I like to get creative and add in veg where I can.

Meet creamy tahini porridge with zucchini and carrot!!

1/4 cup oats
1/2-3/4 water/soy milk/what have you
Sprinkle of chia seeds
Sprinkle of ground flax seed
Sprinkle of coconut flakes
About 1/4 of a grated zuchini and 1/4 of a grated carrot
1/2 banana chopped
1 heaped tablespoon tahini
Sweetener to taste. I used some stevia, and a little honey
Drop of vanilla
1 scoop wheatgrass powder
Walnuts
Hemp seeds
Coconut sugar

Bring oats and water to a boil and turn down to low. Add a bit more water/milk and the grated veg and stir for a minute or so before adding the rest of the ingredients, saving the walnuts, hemp seeds and coconut sugar to sprinkle on top.

Don’t be freaked out about adding veg to your porridge! This almost tastes like carrot cake batter! It’s creamy and sweet with a perfect variety of textures.
