MORNING PORRIDGE RECIPE

porridge | designlovefest

on a rainy saturday i found myself at sqirl with my family. it felt like we ordered almost one of everything on the menu, including their brown rice porridge. they served it very simply but it was beautiful and incredibly satisfying. it left me thinking about creating our own “chic porridge” that could easily be made on a weekday or for a weekend brunch. -joanie

there are endless options when it comes to the best way to serve this but here is what we did and can recommend to you. for the porridge portion we simply used oatmeal. you can do half oatmeal/half quinoa or any other fancy concoction you’d like but oatmeal is inexpensive and worked just fine.

what you’ll need:
serves: 4

• 2 cups of cooked oatmeal, we cooked ours in coconut milk with a little pinch of salt.
• almond butter
• baked apples – thinly slice, lightly coat in coconut oil and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. bake on parchment paper at 350 for about 10 minutes, until crisped.
• fresh raspberries
• hazelnuts, roasted for 15 minutes at 275, and the chopped. we left ours with the skin on.
• coconut flakes, like these.
• jam or jelly
• coconut milk
• honey

• place a big spoonful of oatmeal at the center of each bowl and pour coconut milk over it, about 1/2 cup each. mix it around, the oatmeal should be mostly covered. add the toppings as desired. we used unsweetened coconut milk so we recommend adding a little drizzle of honey on top before serving.

WEEKEND AT HOME / 12

instead of those unsightly plastic bins, store your laundry in something pretty. think of your laundry basket as an extension to the room, it can be practical and pretty. try a textured handmade basket, minimal wired basket, or one with a fun color scheme. i have this rainbow laundry basket and actually look forward to tossing my laundry into it since it’s so pretty! now for that pile of clean clothes next to my closet… that’s another story. shop the look at the links below… happy decorating! – erika
