Thermomix Postpartum Porridge


Thermomix Postpartum Porridge

I know, I know…when you have a newborn breakfast NEVER looks like the above photo!
But you don’t have to be a new mother to enjoy this porridge.
While the ingredients were specifically chosen to support Ayurvedic suggestions regarding recovering from childbirth, this Thermomix Postpartum Porridge can be enjoyed by anyone.
Whenever I make this for a new mothers, I am reminded of how good it is and I always end up making some for myself too!
And yes, with a six year old and a two year old, I do sometimes get to read a book while I eat breakfast.

6 dried dates
50 grams almonds
1 large carrot, chopped into a few pieces
150 grams oats
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
sprinkle of nutmeg
450 grams milk of choice
350 grams water

pumpkin seeds
sunflower seeds

This recipe makes four servings.

If you want to top the porridge with toasted seeds, pop a pan onto medium heat before you begin.

Put the 6 dates, 50 grams almonds, and carrot pieces into your Thermomix bowl.
Chop 6 seconds, speed 5 so everything is evenly diced.
Add 150 grams oats, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, a sprinkle of nutmeg, 450 grams milk, and 350 grams water.
Cook at 90 degrees, 11 minutes, reverse speed 2.

By now your pan should be hot.  Add a couple of tablespoons of both pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to the dry pan.  Keep an eye on the seeds and agitate the pan if needed to keep them from burning.

When your porridge is done, add a drizzle of maple syrup, a dash of milk, your toasted seeds, and a few sultanas.

I hope this porridge makes you feel warm, content, and nourished!

    Caitlin, I made this recipe a few months ago and came back to make it again this morning now that bub is here. Love doing this kind of thing in the thermie. Unfortunately my bigger kids and hubby only like plain old porridge but I’ll enjoy eating it over a few days 😁. Would you recommend that book ‘Golden Month’ pictured? I read ‘The First Forty Days’ recently and got a lot out of it. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Ha…that is what I do too…make a batch of this just for me as the kids prefer “normal” porridge. It does keep and reheat pretty well though.
      I enjoyed Golden Month. There isn’t a huge amount of particularly “new” information in it if you have read other postpartum books but it makes for a pleasant read.
