Porridge can be boring if you let it be. Traditionally made of oats with water and cooked into a paste, it can be bland, gluey and altogether pretty unpleasant in the wrong hands. It doesn’t have to be this way though… I love porridge, and I make sure that I cook it and serve it in a way that keeps it interesting, tasty and ultimately (most of the time) still good for me.
I prefer to make my porridge with oat milk instead of water as I think it turns out creamier and more paletable. You can use cows, goats, sheeps, soy, rice, or almond milk as subsititutes. If you do use water then I’m a fan of stirring through a spoonful of yoghurt to give your oats a nicer texture on your tongue.
Below are just some of the things I like to accompany my morning porridge with….do you have any great favourites you’d like to share?
