I love my oats, but I also enjoy using other cereals/grains for porridge. Today, I made my breakfast bowl with giant couscous! I topped it with blueberries, pumpkin seeds, sultanas, toasted, flaked almonds and some cinnamon. It’s so easy to make and as usual #nutrientdense. It is carb-heavy, so you can have a dense protein source on the side such as yoghurt or you can use soy milk. ✨The extra protein will help with satiety and will also prevent drastic blood sugar spikes?
– 60g giant couscous
– 150ml almond milk
– ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
– 100g blueberries – 1 tablespoon sultanas
– 1 tablespoon toasted flaked almond
– 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
– A pinch of cinnamon
✨Place the couscous in a medium saucepan then add around 100ml of hot water half the almond milk and the vanilla extract. Cook on the lowest heat setting for around 8 minutes or until the couscous is tender.✨Transfer the couscous to a bowl, top with sultanas, blueberries, pumpkin seeds and cinnamon. ✨Pour in the remaining almond milk and top with more cinnamon. Drizzle on some honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness if you wish.
