Sweet potato porridge with cinnamon and ginger


  • 1 medium small potato, baked (I use leftovers for the previous evenings dinner)
  • 1 handful oats
  • 1 handful quinoa flakes (substitute with more oats if you don’t have these)
  • 1 cup dairy free milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp coconut jam or date or rice syrup
  • A few chopped nuts – i used roasted and chopped hazelnuts but you can use any…..roasting isn’t necessary but for some nuts it will make them more flavoursome


  1. Mush the sweet potato with a fork or with your fingers.
  2. Put all of the ingredients except the nuts into a pan.
  3. Simmer gently on a low – medium heats – stir occasionally.
  4. Once the porridge has thickened (around 5 minutes) pour into a bowl and top with the nuts.
