CHAI PUDDING

​Ingredients
  • 80g chia seeds

  • 350ml dairy free milk (the thicker the milk, such as coconut or cashew, the thicker the pudding will be; add water to the milk if you need it to be lighter)

Method

To make the chia pudding, whisk chia seeds with dairy-free milk

Leave to soak in the fridge for at least 5 hours (best overnight).

Once the pudding has thickened (add more seeds if it has not and leave to chill for another couple of hours), you can add a little maple syrup if not enough sweet and/or a little vanilla extract.

Layer with fresh fruits, yoghurt, compote and topped with granola

BUCKWHEAT & MILLET FLAKES PORRIDGE

Ingredients
  • 100g buckwheat

  • 50g millet

  • Enough water or milk to cover the grains

Method

To make the porridge, in a medium-sized saucepan, add the grains, nut milk or water and gently cook while stirring.

Continue to stir and add up to another cup of water as it simmers. The porridge is ready when the grains become soft (about 10-15 minutes).

Let the porridge rest, off the heat, for five minutes with the lid on. Top up with granola, fresh fruits or fruit compote just before serving.

KHEER TOPPED GRANOLA

Ingredients
  • 1 cup of brown long grain rice

  • 2 cups of almond or other nut milk

  • 1 cup of water

  • pinch of saffron (soaked in a little hot water or nut milk)

  • seeds from 6 green cardamom, crushed

  • 1 cinnamon stick

Method

Soak rice in water overnight

Drain the rice and add it to a pan of almond milk and water with the cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, add more liquid if need be.

The rice mixture should have thickened (put off pan from fire and let it cool. Cooling will increase its thick consistency more).

Add saffron (which had been soaked in milk) and the crushed cardamom seeds.

Cook for another 15 minutes, adding a little more liquid if necessary.

Serve topped with granola and a little yoghurt on the side.
