|Dairy-free cornmeal porridge|
We gave up milk and cheese and it's by-products a few years ago. So now we enjoy our porridge without milk and sometimes with coconut milk. In my milk days I would never have thought I would be able to enjoy porridge without milk but it's been okay. I just make sure I use plenty of whatever spices I put in and I'm good to go.
So if you're lactose intolerant or you've chosen like me to stay away from cow's milk, here's a cooked cereal for you to enjoy. Just remember to add plenty of spices like I said. In the picture below I added grated nutmeg and raisins to it.

Dairy-free Cornmeal Porridge
2 cups cornmeal
8 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
Boil half of the water with the cinnamon and bay leaves. While they spices are steeping, add the remaining water to the cornmeal in a bowl. Stir well. Add cornmeal to the boiling water, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until cornmeal is cooked. If it gets too thick add some more hot water. Add the sugar and the essences close to the end. Serve and enjoy!
P.S. In this recipe I used cinnamon and bay leaves. Sometimes I use other spices like lemongrass and pwev geenay(don't know the english name for it).
