So Now We're Putting Vegetables in Our Porridge
Is there anything better than having dessert for breakfast? If you ask us, we’d have to say no. As autumn is in full swing and winter is drawing ever closer, we’re thinking about all the ways that we can start swapping out our muesli and fruit for a warming bowl of porridge. At MyDomaine Australia, we are big-time foodies (especially in the colder months), and you’ll often find us in the kitchen creating new meals (follow our Snapchat account for proof). Never ones to skimp on the health factor, we’re always thinking about the nutritional value of a meal, especially when it comes to breakfast. When we saw this delicious recipe for Spiced Carrot Baked Oatmeal we couldn't wait to try it.
“I love oats and porridge. Especially in the cooler months. It’s a warm, cosy, comforting meal with so many options for toppings and flavours,” said Ashley Alexander from Gather & Feast. Alexander is one of our favourite food bloggers, and has come up with a way to make your breakfast an indulgence without skimping on the health factor (sounds too good to be true right?).
