From the statements of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) are that, "The black seed is a cure for every disease". Much research has been done and is under way to investigate and substantiate the health benefits and anti-disease activity of the black seed (nigella sativa).
Flax seeds contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for good all round health (as well as brainpower). This porridge is great as a dietary regulator, helping to keep your digestive system in good order.
We like to start our day with a couple of glasses of water followed by this porridge around half an hour later. It tastes delicious too when you add some honey to it. This recipe makes porridge for one serving
In a pan, place the oat flakes and water and steadily bring to a boil. Meanwhile grind the flax seeds in a coffee grinder. You should always grind flax seeds at the point of using them in the recipe, since once they are ground, they start to lose their goodness after 10-15 minutes.
Add the ground flax seeds into the pan, mix thoroughly, and then bring to a boil again. After this leave the porridge to stand off the heat for 8-10 minutes.
Add the black seed oil and the honey to the porridge when serving. If you want, you can add some blueberries and strawberries at the end.
It is so simple to make and extremely good for you.
