This Breakfast Recipe Serves 1-2
Semolina porridge is a referred to as a cereal. It is boiled to produce a porridge; a popular brand of this is Taystee Wheat or Cream of Wheat. This porridge is most popular in South Africa, United States of America & Poland.
Growing up, I remember always troubling my late grandmother to prepare this porridge for me. I love it when the semolina grains are a bit swelled & feel like tiny beads in your mouth. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a chance & trust me you will be preparing this very often.
The semolina is cooked in water, milk or a blend of the two. You can make it as thick or weak as you prefer & as sweet as you need.
It’s a healthy & warm start to the day, not forgetting, a very filling meal – although I can eat this meal all day long because that’s how good it tastes.
Semolina is coarse, refined wheat middlings of durum wheat essentially utilized as a part of making pasta & couscous.
