Seven Grain Porridge from Natural Blend

Our one day of warmth last week was clearly just a tease…it’s back to freezing here in NYC. If you’d like to start your day with something warm and soothing, try the Seven Grain Porridge from Natural Blend, a vegetarian Caribbean joint in Prospect Heights. Just $3.50 will get you a full 8 oz of piping hot and hearty porridge. They also sell a large (16 oz) for $6.50, but I cannot imagine one person being able to eat all that–it would be perfect for two or three though.

Seven Grain Porridge from Natural Blend is perfect for eating on the subway on the way to work!

They call it Seven Grain Porridge, and I spent a while trying to figure out what the seven grains are, or if there even is actually seven. I’ve concluded that there is definitely millet, oats, barley, and possibly amaranth and/or spelt in it. The grains are married together by a thick and milky liquid, flavored with spices like cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. The overall effect is warm, gooey, spicy goodness that will comfort you, while waking you up and preparing you to face the day. Perfection!

And, if you feel the need for a treat, Natural Blend also has excellent vegan baked goods, including various quick breads, like strawberry, carrot, and zucchini. And on the non-breakfast front, their vegetarian patties and other dinner items are delicious too. And cheap!

Natural Blend is located at 769 Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, between Sterling Pl and St. Johns Pl.
