Brazil Nut Porridge

On those cool (or cold, depending on where you are) winter mornings it’s nice to start out the day with something warm in your belly. Before you go and boil, toast , pan fry or microwave your breakfast take a look at this tasty recipe for a breakfast cereal. I like to fill my 9-tray dehydrator with sprouted buckwheat and dry it for use throughout the month. The dry mixture of ingredients below can be prepared in bulk amounts in advance, that way all you have to do is scoop out the mix and add hot tea.

6 brazil nuts – cut into chunks

5 dried figs – cut off stem and dice

2 TB sprouted buckwheat

1 TB chia seeds

1-2 TB goji berries or raisins

1 TB mesquite

1 TB cacao nibs – optional

1-2 tsp maca

1 tsp carob

1 tsp cinnamon
pinch Himalayan or sea salt

1/2 apple – small dice or fine julienne cut or use a banana

1 C hot herbal tea

1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. Add hot herbal tea of your choice and stir in. Allow to sit in the dehydrator or on the counter for 5-10 minutes.

3. Cut up apple and mix in.

4. Serve warm or chill it in the fridge.
