Semolina Porridge / Mannagrynsgröt

Healthy breakfast, quick and light lunch or a treat. Semolina porridge is all those wrapped into one. So what is Semolina? Well...Semolina is the coarse, purified wheat middlings of durum wheat used in making pasta, also used for breakfast cereals, porridge and puddings. In Sweden we love all types or porridge (especially the ones eaten with milk, sugar & cinnamon) and most common ones are made from rice, oats or semolina.
You Will Need (2portions):
  • 4 tbs (4x15ml) Semolina
  • 400 ml (4 dl) Dairy Free Cooking Cream/Milk (I use unsweetened)
  • 1 pinch of Salt
To serve:
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Dairy Free Milk (I use Alpro Soya Natural)
  1. Heat the cooking cream/milk in a pan along with the salt.
  2. Add the semolina. Bring to a simmer whilst stirring. Let simmer for 4 minutes.
  3. Now the porridge is done! EASY! Serve warm with the sugar, cinnamon and milk.

  2. This looks delicious. I've just been introduced to the world of porridge, and I don't see myself going back to steel cut-anything, anytime soon. Cannot wait to get my hands on some semolina and try!

    1. Ashlae I hope you find some and get to try it out. Have fun.
      Thanks for reading the blog.

  3. Over here in Russia semolina porridge is very popular too (especially in all nursery schools :). But I make it a bit different: 30 ml of semolina and 350 ml of milk. It will take a bit longer to cook (about 10 minutes) and it will be more liquid (for me it's a perfect consistency).

  4. Gjorde detta receptet (använde alpro osötad soya, toppade med marmelad & socker) så otroligt gott! Och billigt :) Kommer bli en favorit här hemma.
