March 27, 2017

Mornings are pretty frantic in most homes, so imagine the brownie points you could score by helping out and becoming porridge monitor. A bowl of porridge in the morning will keep you fuelled up with energy until lunchtime and it’s so simple to make, too.

  • Yields: Serves 4


150 g jumbo oats

250 ml milk or almond milk or coconut milk

750 ml water

A pinch of salt


1Put the oats, milk and water together in a deep saucepan.

2Place the pan over a high heat and stir with a wooden spoon. Be sure to hold the handle of the pan to steady it as you stir.

3A soon as the porridge starts to bubble and boil turn the heat down to a simmer.

4Keep stirring for about seven minutes until the mixture thickens and the oat flakes have collapsed.

5Once the porridge looks really creamy you’re done.

6Now it’s time for the real fun, adding your flavourings.
