Porridge 4 Ways

Nov 2022

Is there a more comforting way to start the day than with a warming, filling bowl of porridge?

A good breakfast to look forward to doesn’t half make tumbling out of bed on a crisp, cold morning a lot easier.

Oats are an almost infinitely versatile ingredient. Minimally processed, readily available in shops, cost-effective, and a source of nourishing complex carbohydrates. The key to making them into a really satisfying and nutritious breakfast is to include extra protein. Nuts, seeds, or nut butters tend to be the tastiest combination. I’ll usually add a portion of fresh fruit too, for an extra boost of essential vitamins and beneficial phytonutrients.

Here is a selection of 4 delicious flavour combinations, each serving 1.

If you can’t have certain nuts, then just substitute them for another nut or nut butter, or use seeds instead.
