  • 1 cup broken wheat, washed and soaked

    30 gm carrots, cut into chunks

    1 medium onion, cut into 4

    20-30 gm of leeks, cut into chunks

    2 cloves of garlic

    1 Tbsp ginger, finely chopped

    1 green chilli, chopped

    1 Tbsp of celery, finely chopped

    1 cup of vegetable stock

    A pinch of saffron

    2 Tbsp of broccoli stems, diced

    1 cup spinach, washed

    1 cup laal math leaves, washed

    Juice of 1/2 a lemon

    Pinch of lemon zest

    Salt and pepper to season

    1 cup broccoli florets, trimmed

    1 Tbsp parmesan cheese, grated

    1 Tbsp parsley, chopped


In a blender, add the carrots, onions, leeks, garlic, celery, ginger and green chilli.

Blend it into a chunky paste.

Boil the vegetable stock with a pinch of saffron.

In another pan add 1 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and sweat half of the previously made chunky paste.

Add the broccoli stems. Blanch the spinach and laal math in hot salted water for just a few seconds and immediately add to the pan and saute with the other vegetables.

Saute well and add lemon juice, salt and pepper and a pinch of lemon zest.

Add 1 1/2 tablespoon of the stock into the vegetables.

Add the drained broken wheat and mix very gently.

Add the broccoli florets and grated parmesan cheese.

You may need to add a little more stock if you want a porridge consistency.

Serve the porridge warm or cold with parmesan shavings.
