Golden Milk Porridge
Serves: 2
The turmeric paste will make more than you need for this dish - it can be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks to use in more golden milk/porridge later on.
Turmeric paste
  • 2Tbsp powdered turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp finely grated ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee
  • ⅔ cup rolled oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅔ cup water or milk of choice
  • 1 tsp turmeric paste
  • 1 tsp raw honey
Golden Milk
  • 1 - 2 tsp turmeric paste
  • 1 - 2 tsp raw honey
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I love coconut here)
  • ½ tsp fresh vanilla seeds, optional
  1. Add the ingredients for the turmeric paste to a small saucepan over low heat, and stir well to combine - it should form a thick paste. If the paste is too thick, add another tablespoon or so of water to thin slightly. Continue to cook over low heat for around 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. To make the porridge, combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over low to medium heat for 15 minutes.
  3. To make the Golden Milk, add the paste, honey and a Tbsp or two of the coconut milk in a small saucepan over low heat, and stir together to form a fairly runny paste. Continue to add the remained of the milk, stiring continuously. Heat until simmering, stir through the vanilla if using, and remove from heat.
  4. To assemble, divide the porridge between two bowls, and pour half the Golden Milk over each. Top with your favorite porridge toppings, and enjoy immediately.
