Recipe Directions

after the oats have been soaked overnight and are nice and soft, blend them thoroughly with at least one cup of water, scrape the escapees off the side a few times, give it a really good blast on a good high speed, if you have a vitamix your set already. when its nice and creamy pour/scrape into a bowl and mix in the flax seed. cover and let sit at room temperature for a few hours, the flax goes nice and slippy to replicate the cooked oat slippy texture. when you are ready to eat decide if you are going the sweet sweet agave route, or the icky salt route, and add your desired sweet/salty choice. give it a good stir

if you fancy it warmed on your steamer or radiator slighty or in a warm bowl it will really fight off those winter blues and keep you chirpy for a good few hours

enjoy a taste of the highlands

Traditional Porridge, raw stylee, ok the real kilt wearing scots have their porridge made with water and salt, us southern softies have ours with milk and sugar. If you want to go the kilt path feel free to use 1 tsp salt and omit the agve, i personally dont dig it like that tho

I managed to get oat groats when I was on holiday in scotland this summer, but finding them in England is a struggle Im finding. I made this with dates rather than Agave and no flax and it was heaven. Im also a southern Englander (although I live in the north now) and prefer my porrige sweet.

buckwheat is a differnt grain to oats, you can have groats of any grain, it just means the whole grain really, make sure to buy unhulled to be sure of rawness. with porridge it has to be oats, but you can make a very nice buckwheat porridge too, but the procedure and taste would be different as buckwheat soaks very quickly.

its confusing all these different ingrediants i know, and to think people think raw food is borning! far from it :)

I'm in Scotland and I've been making porridge too recently as the cooler weather comes in. I like to soak oat groats and blend with a banana and maca, pinch salt, maybe add chlorella sometimes. Yum, best eaten warm too.

I think the only really raw oats are unhulled. I have spoke to several 'oat farmers' and they said that there is no such thing as raw oats without the husk. They have to slightly steam them off (even if it is at a low temp.) and they go rancid very very quickly. They said you can not store 'raw oats' for longer than a few weeks without going rancid. I think you could use quinoa flakes....don't know if those are raw but I am going to try those oats with the husk on them. Thank you for this receipe!

hi lena, unhulled oats will defiantely be raw, the ones with the husk still on, most oat groats (hull removed), rolled oats (flat) and steel cut oats (chunky bits) are not raw, unless they specifically say they are. you can find unhulled oats at your health food store. hope you can get them ok there, my best friend is swedish so i could ask her for you if that helps

eat 2 evolve, most often rolled oats are heated to soften them for rolling. i think its the same with the steel cut. you can buy both raw but you will have to go to a company that specifically states they are raw. thats why i use unhulled oats, they havent been tampered with at all

Hello,

I wonder what the difference is between hulled/rolled oats. I'm from Sweden and I am not sure which one of them means raw. I must use the raw kind; anything NOT raw, makes me very ill immidiatly. But the recipe sounds great though!

MsDerious i reacon that would be ideal, if its proper unhulled oats you will want to give a good 24 hours soak tho to soften them up so im your case if oyu put them on tonight (fri) the whole process would be ready for your sunday morning brekkie :)

homecounties aye, i was born and bred in west sussex :)

Sounds lummy. Thank you :O)

As a homecounties southerner I've been bought up on sweet porridge... salt porridge just confuses my taste buds. I like to have dried fruit in mine too :) Ooooh! Idea, I could use some home made date sugar to sweeten.

Do you think it would be okay to leave the oats a very hours to soak, then 'whiz' them, then add the flax and leave overnight? I like my porridge in the mornings :)

ah this is southern england im talking about, atho grits sound delumptious as well :P

you can do this with ANY oats, i just prefer unhulled raw whole oats, but it would be equally delicious no matter which oats you use.

FYI: Steel cut oats aren't raw, but you can order oats for sprouting from www.sunorganic.com and they are whole oats that don't have hulls. www.alissacohen.com sells raw rolled oats. "Raw" oat groats aren't really raw, either.

I thought Southerners liked grits with salt & pepper...this seems like it would be similar. Good either way, I'm sure. :)

Hmmm, personally I love a little maple syrup in my oatmeal (not raw but mine is local from farm I know which is next best thing to me). Would steel cut oats really work? If so you may have just made my winter!!

Icky salt? I protest! I love to douse everything in salt. This porridge looks delightful! I have a bag of oats to use - i'll give this a whirl.

i know some rolled oats arent raw, and traditionally you would use rolled oats for this and simmered them in boiling milk or water to cook until it thikcened. i use the whole, unhulled, raw oat, but this would work with steel cut oats too.

Always wondered...Bob's Red Mill Organic Steel-cut Oats. Is this what you are talking about? I have soaked them and eaten them, but I never knew if they were raw or not. I must say i hate anything sweet in my oats. seasalt and a little coconut oil. Perrrrfect!
