Topped with juicy roasted blueberries and slivered almonds, this einkorn porridge is a breakfast worth getting out of bed for.


Scale

Ingredients

For the Porridge:

  • ½ cup einkorn berries
  • 1 ¼ cups water or milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons slivered almonds
  • Additional maple syrup or milk for topping (optional)

For the Roasted Berries:

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed (or frozen)
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom, to taste

Instructions

  1. Pulse einkorn 3-5 times in a high speed blender or food processor to crack them into smaller pieces. They should resemble steel cut oats.
  2. Place einkorn in a medium pot over high heat and toast for 1-2 minutes. Add 1 ¼ cups water or milk and salt; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 25-30 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. If the liquid has been absorbed but the einkorn is still too firm, add 1/4-1/2 cup more water or milk.
  4. While porridge is cooking, preheat oven to 400oF.
  5. Toss blueberries in maple syrup and cardamom. Place in a baking pan and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until berries have released their juices.
  6. Divide cooked porridge into two bowls and top with roasted blueberries, slivered almonds, and extra maple syrup or milk if desired.
