Veggie Stir Fry Porridge: a quick and power packed meal with nutrients.
Hey There – Do you like Porridge?
Most of the times, the answer would be ahh…not sure…yeah maybe as breakfast….But that’s about it.
That’s exactly how I also ate porridge for many years as it’s one of a very healthy and quick breakfast food.
The high fiber content in porridge may improve digestion, reduce high blood cholesterol and help prevent heart disease.
Infact, I’ve started using whole wheat porridge (Dalia – available in stores easily) in place of rice in my daily meal and I have to say I love it.
Just like rice, it doesn’t have any taste of its own, hence it can easily accompany any vegetable/meat/ curry.
And today’s recipe of Veggie Stir Fry Porridge is hand’s down my favorite porridge recipe (Savory) and in the true sense is a “Fusion”.
I mix it with choice of veggies along with some soy sauce, chili sauce, seasoning and chopped avocado (Optional)
I have been making this particular recipe for past 3-4yrs and it’s loved by everyone who tried.
Infact if you have pre-made porridge (bland) then this is a 10 minutes recipe, which is absolutely perfect as a meal.
You may add meat to it as well and it tastes equally amazing.
