I’ve made this countless times in the last month. It’s satisfying like a bowl of old fashioned oatmeal or grits. Not the same, but just as wonderful. It’s the perfect post workout meal and really filling. Aurelia loves it for breakfast and I’ve made it on a few very late nights. This is a big serving and I often share it with Aurelia or roughly halve the ingredients and have a smaller bowl to myself. But when I’m really hungry and craving something carb-rich, I can tuck into a big bowl of this eggy porridge, topped with some fruit, stevia, and cinnamon, and it hits the spot. It’s the best of both worlds – comfort and health food. Try topping with any fruit, nuts, cinnamon, cardamom, almond or vanilla extract, seeds, dried fruit, nut butters, or natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or stevia. Really, it’s delightful and real fast food.
If you don’t want to use the microwave, it works beautifully in a pot on the stove. Just keep stirring over medium heat for a couple minutes until it reaches the right “oatmeal” consistency.
