Porridge

Porridge

I always make mine in the microwave, as it’s much easier to wash-up afterwards. I use a large Pyrex casserole dish with a lid. This recipe is plenty for 2 people (I suspect that the portion sizes are far larger than shown on the packet, but then with a bowl of this inside you, you won’t feel hungry for a long time!). This recipe is measured by volume – this somehow seems much easier first thing in the morning:

  • 450ml of rolled oats (I’ve used ‘basics’ ranges and they seem just as good as more expensive rolled oats)
  • 500ml milk (you can vary the proportions of milk and water, as you like)
  • 500ml water

Put the rolled oats into a large non-metallic dish. Stir in the milk and water.

Cover and microwave at 850W for 7 minutes. Remove from microwave, stir, and cook for another 2 minutes and 15 seconds at 350W.

Remove from microwave, stir, and leave to stand for a minute. Serve.

Serving suggestions:

  • ground cinnamon; or
  • sliced banana, raisins and maple syrup.
