Jane's Five Grain Porridge

Jane, the creative cleanser who coined the term GAS CAP (for Gluten, Alcohol, Sugar, Caffeine, and Animal Products), shared this amazing recipe with us during a previous cleanse. Thank you, Jane!

Jane’s Five Grain Porridge

4 C---bring to boil and stir in the ingredients at ten minute intervals, in the following order:

1/2 C brown rice
1/2 C steel cut oats, rinsed
1/2 C amaranth
1/2 C millet
1/2 C quinoa, rinsed

After 10 minutes, turn off the heat and let it sit for 30 minutes Then serve or refrigerate. Great and easy to reheat in the morning.

Jane says, “I use McCanns, and also organic steel cut oats from the coop. McCanns states the oats are gluten free but can't guarantee they haven't had cross contamination due to using same machines on others grains in their processing. Still, that's clean enough for me.

“It takes about an hour to make at night but makes a great breakfast on cold mornings, especially when mixed with blueberries or other fruit, and maybe some soy milk, and stevia, if you like it sweetened. The best part is it lasts several days and is easy to heat in the microwave.”


  1. I have made three double batches of the porridge since I started.No I haven't eaten it all. I was a hit of all three of my last hiking and biking trips. Have passed on the receipe. It's great

  2. I love that it's been such a hit for you, Trish! I haven't tried it yet - waiting for colder weather - but everyone says it's great! Hope you had a great weekend!
