Ginger Couscous Porridge

WP_20151106_004

This Porridge is an alternative to oatmeals. It still warm, healthy and nutritious but due that it is make with couscous you will obtain essential amino acids that the oatmeal does not provides. To the couscous porridge, you have to add the double amount of liquid or more for it to be smooth and perfectly cook. 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 rasberries, banana slices and Pistachio Spread. I loved the texture, consistence and flavor of this dish! It is a perfect breakfast choice for vegans. You can also try it with quinoa.
