Don’t let the name of this food scare you, it is one of the greatest inventions of all time! Adding zucchini to your porridge is a genius way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, plus cuts the calories in half. I say zucchini porridge is supercool!
I was introduced to this zucchini porridge (or as she calls zoats) by the lovely Josefine. Her blog is anyway amazing, but for this recipe I am so thankful to her, there are no words for it. I just can’t stop adore this porridge! When I first saw the recipe, I knew it must be something special, but I didn’t expect this…heaven!
Usually I eat zucchini more as a savory food than a sweet one, but this recipe may change this situation. This porridge is extra creamy and has endless options. You can use any milk of your choice, you can add spices and nut butters, fruits, berries or seeds as toppings. Or wonderful caramelized pears.
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of finely shredded zucchini (peeled in my case)
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Add all the ingredients to a small pot and cook for about 5-10 minutes. Don't forget to stir sometimes. Add your toppings and serve warm. Enjoy!
