Winter is in - so look after you!Darker mornings can at times mean less of a desire to get out of bed early – it can also mean a strong desire for comfort food, but this doesn’t mean that breaky needs to be less nourishing during winter! What could be better than enjoying a deliciously creamy bowl of chai infused porridge on a cold winter's morning – ok maybe for the exception of a warming hot Madura brew - but a creamy winter porridge certainly comes in second! Oats are a great nourishing and affordable super-food, infuse your milk of choice with chai and voila an incredibly delicious, fragrant supercharged breaky – in a matter of minutes! On those days that you feel you are rushed for time, try making a Madura Te Chai infuse porridge that way you can steep, sip and eat your breaky all in one! Enjoy!
Ingredients½ cup of Australian rolled oats – we have used @redtractorfoods 3/4 cup water 1/2 cup milk of choice – we have used @norcofreshmilk 1 tsp loose leaf Madura Chai Tea Leaves in a brewing tool (or 1 leaf infuser tea bag). Add more if you prefer a stronger chai infused porridge Serve with blueberries, raw honey, raw or dry roasted almonds – the choice is really yours – let your tastebuds guide you.
To MakeIn a small saucepan bring the milk and water to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, remove from heat – add the chai tea and allow to infuse for 8 minutes. Return the saucepan to the heat and bring to simmer again. Remove the tea bags/leaves/brewing tool and transfer the mixture to a jug. Rinse the saucepan. In the same saucepan, add the oats, and 3/4 of the milky tea mixture – allow to sit over medium heat, once it begins to bubble, stir continuously and continue to stir until the oats have absorbed the liquid. Add the remaining milk mixture and extra water/milk if required. Remove from heat when the desired consistency is reached and serve with a dash of extra milk!
