Gluten Free Indian Inspired Turmeric Porridge

I love porridge, not every Coeliac can tolerate gluten free oats though so this can be made with rice flakes too. Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory and tastes lovely in this gently sweetened breakfast, top with fruit of choice, some cashews and a drizzle or maple syrup or honey and you have a delicious start to your day. This recipe is also vegan/dairy free (as long as topped with maple syrup not honey), it wasn't intended that way but how it came out as coconut milk works really well with turmeric and adds to the Indian inspiration.

This recipe contains:

  • Tree Nuts
Recipe by Alison Peters


80g gluten free porridge oats (or alternatively rice flakes)
300ml coconut milk drink (such as Alpro)
1.5tbsp stevia (or if preferred 2tbsp maple syrup)
1tsp turmeric
1/2tsp ground ginger
Pinch ground cumin
Pinch black pepper
30g raisins
Fruit to top (Pineapple, mango, berries all work well)
25g cashew nuts
Drizzle maple syrup (or honey if not Vegan)
  • Preparation Time: 5 Mins
  • Cooking Time: 6 Mins
  • This recipe makes 2 servings


1. In a bowl place the porridge oats, coconut milk, stevia sweetener/maple syrup, turmeric, ground ginger, ground cumin and black pepper. Sir together to combine as well as you can. If you like a runnier porridge add an extra 50ml of coconut milk, I make mine quite thick!

2. Either place the bowl in a microwave for around 2 mins, stirring at the half way mark, until the porridge starts to thicken or alternatively place the mix in a saucepan and gently heat for 4-5 mins continuously stirring until it begins to thicken.

3. Stir in the raisins and heat for another 30secs - 1 min in the microwave/saucepan.

4. Split into two bowls and top with any fruit of choice, pineapple and mango work well with coconut but it is also really good with any berries, I tend to choose strawberries and blueberries. Add some cashew nuts and drizzle with a little maple syrup (or honey works beautifully if you don't want it to be vegan)
