Soaking and activating grains is important because it neutralizes phytic acid and improve their nutritional benefits.
I had some experience in soaking the grains but I hadn’t tried to activate them. I wanted to try something healthy and new and after reading a lot of articles on the topic I decided to give it a try. As a yogurt fan I chose to activate them with lactobacilli by simply soaking the grains in warm water with a spoon of Bulgarian yogurt. I left the grains in the water for the night and in the morning I had a freshly activated porridge. Using some seasonal and local fruits give it an irresistible taste.
All you need is:
1 spoon Bulgarian yogurt (If you are vegan instead of yogurt you can use powdered live culture)
You can add some spices like cinnamon, vanilla or cardamon. Adding some honey will make the porridge sweeter if it is not sweet enough for you.
