Overnight Grains Recipe

With the flexibility to be topped with seasonal berries and nuts, this recipe adds versatility to reinvent your breakfast bowl every morning. Explore nutritious grains such as millet, amaranth, buckwheat groats, or flakes of quinoa, barley or rye.

Add a spoonful of coconut yogurt and experiment with plant-based milks such as oat, hemp, rice or almond to discover new flavour combinations too.

Ingredients

Serves 2-3

Overnight Grains
Up to 600ml milk of choice (for example almond, hazelnut or rice milk)
100g millet
100g oats
100g amaranth
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp cinnamon
Pinch of good nutmeg or grating of whole nutmeg

Toppings
Blueberries/Blackberries/Raspberries
Dried fruit
1-2 tbsp nuts or seeds of your choice
2 tbsp natural yoghurt or dairy free yoghurt

Instructions

  1. Soak your chosen grains overnight in water.
  2. Drain the grains and transfer to a pan in the morning, using 200-300ml of your chosen milk, bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes or until the grains are soft. Add the spices and vanilla extract.
  3. You may need to add more milk if necessary to get the desired stirrable consistency.
  4. Serve with fresh or dried fruit and toppings of your choice. We have used natural yoghurt, blueberries, dates and seeds.
