From a video I shot for @goodcravings YouTube this week. 📹
Kutya is a traditional Eastern European Christmas dish, one of twelve that are prepared on Christmas Eve in Ukraine. 🇺🇦
Originally it is a porridge made of sprouted hard wheat berries boiled in milk for few hours with dried fruit, nuts, poppy seeds and honey added.
I made my small improvements to make dish faster to prepare, plant based and more nutritious.
For that I:
1. Used @central_market 5-grain blend (kamut, rye, wheat, oats and brown rice) that cooks only for 10 minutes. ⏰👍 2. Swapped regular milk for almond milk to make it plantbased. 🌱🌿 3. Substituted poppy seeds with chia seeds, as poppy seeds are harder to find and chia is more nutritious anyway. 😌☝ 4. Used dried apricots, golden raisins, and raw walnuts added to the porridge. 🍇🌰 It is an excellent breakfast and even a preworkout!
