Matcha green tea porridge. Perfect immune boosting breakfast.
½ cup oats (or soaked oat groats)
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 small banana mashed (set aside 1/3 sliced for top)
¼ cup finely grated courgette
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp OMG Matcha tea powder – buy online here
how to make it
I put all ingredients, other than the matcha powder and banana slices, into a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Simmer gently for 6-7 minutes until the oats are soft and fully cooked. Mix the matcha powder with a few tablespoons of cold water until very smooth, this helps avoid lumps of matcha in the porridge and also from it becoming overheated and loosing nutritional value. Mix the liquid matcha into the porridge away from the stove top and then serve into bowls with the sliced banana on top, along with an extra dusting of matcha or cinnamon if desired.
I also add a sprinkle of chia seeds.
