We love porridge. Porridge would have to be one of the most versatile meals out there – you can eat it for breaky, as a snack, to warm you up during the day, for dessert…the list goes on! On its own, porridge is rather tasteless and boring, so you have to add “something” to make it delicious.
Here are 5 ways we love our porridge:
1. Porridge with Cinnamon
2. Porridge with Fruit
3. Porridge with Honey
4. Porridge with Yoghurt
5. Porridge with Nuts and Seeds
Read below how we make our porridge and for the above variations.
Preparation time: 30 seconds.
Cooking time: 2 minutes (microwave).
Makes: 1 serve.
*1/2 cup quick oats (or you can buy normal oats and blend them into quick oats).
*1 cup water or milk
1. Place oats in bowl and add water or milk.
2. Put bowl in microwave for 2 minutes. You may need an extra 30 seconds depends on microwave wattage but make sure you keep an eye on your oats or they overflow!
3. Look at notes below for porridge variations!
1. Porridge with Cinnamon.
Once porridge is cooked, sprinkle cinnamon on top then stir. This makes the porridge taste quite sweet so you don’t need to add sugar.
2. Porridge with Fruit.
Once porridge is cooked, add your favourite fruit (chopped) to the bowl then stir. We use pear, apple, banana, berries or peaches. You can also sprinkle cinnamon and/or honey on top for extra flavour!
3. Porridge with Honey.
Once porridge is cooked, drizzle honey then stir. Honey is a healthier ingredient than sugar, but it is still sugar so watch your portion!
4. Porridge with Yoghurt.
Once porridge is cooked, grab a small tub of yoghurt and mix it through your porridge. If you want to add more calcium or protein to your meal, this is a perfect way to do so. You can also sprinkle cinnamon on top for extra flavour!
5. Porridge with Nuts and Seeds.
Once porridge is cooked, mix through your favourite nuts (chopped) and seeds. We like to use chia seeds, hemp seeds, almonds, pecans, walnuts or Brazil nuts.
