Ginger Couscous Porridge


This Porridge is an alternative to oatmeals. It still warm, healthy and nutritious but since it is made with couscous, you will obtain essential amino acids that the oatmeal does not provides. For the couscous porridge, you have to add the double amount of liquid or more for it to be smooth and perfectly cooked. I add ginger and vanilla to my Couscous Porridge and mix it with almond milk. It takes about 30minutes to cook the couscous. You have to stir it constantly to check if it is done or if it needs more liquid.

I topped my porridge with raspberries, banana slices and Pistachio Spread. I loved the texture, consistence and flavour of this dish! It is a perfect breakfast choice for vegans. You can also try it with quinoa.
