Morning my lovelies! I had such a busy but exciting end to the week with Sheffield Vegan Festival! Thank you to everyone that came, for your lovely feedback and interest. It was lovely to meet more people and engage with others who have struggled with dietary requirements! I’m happy I can cater for most! If you couldn’t make it, head over to LeitchyCreates Shop to see my online range! Theres bars, boxes and cookbooks! So I don’t really have anything exciting to tell you about my weekend because I was prepping all day Saturday but it was so worth it!! The start of this week though, I’ve had a mini holiday! My Mum and I headed to Southend! (so this has actually been written in advance!) We have been selected to go on Jamie Oliver and Jimmies Friday Night Feast!!!! I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I’m aloud, I think I’m aloud haha! I’ll tell you cllllllllllll about it and our mini break away on Friday!!! Also for those of you who couldn’t make it to Sheffield Vegan Festival, I’m also doing a stall at Nuffield Health in Sheffield on Friday Morning! I’ll be there from 9am until about 1pm!! See you there!!
So today I’m sharing a porridge creation I made last week! A creamy coconut based porridge – if you don’t have coconut milk powder use coconut milk!! Topped with a sweet and zingy blackberry compote which floods into the creamy sweet oats, creamy fresh yoghurt, buttery toasted macadamias and hemp seeds!!
This is great as overnight oats too, pouring the compote over the night before to let the juices soak in! Great for a rushed morning!
Ingredients – serves one
half a lime zested and juiced
5g coriander, chopped
a splash of water
1 tsp maple butter/syrup
50g rolled porridge oats
a pinch of salt
1 tbsp coconut milk powder
200ml oat milk
2 tbsp full fat live yoghurt
1 tbsp roasted macadamias, chopped
1 tsp hemp seeds
Pop the compote ingredients in a small pan and place over a low heat, once simmering, smash the blackberries slightly with a fork. Then leave to thicken and soften.
Meanwhile, pour the porridge ingredients into another small pan. Stir over a medium heat until thickened and then pour into a bowl.
Dollop the yoghurt on one side of the bowl and then pour the compote on the other side.
Scatter the nuts and hemp down the middle and dig in!!
