Perfect porridge

Perfect porridge for a heaIthy way to start the day


Porridge ingredients

  • 50g porridge oats
  • 350ml milk or water, or a mixture of the two
  • fruit or honey, to serve

How to cook porridge on the hob

1. Put the porridge oats in a saucepan, pour in the milk or water and season with a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally and watching closely to ensure it doesn’t stick to the pan.


2. To serve, pour the porridge into bowls and top with fruit or honey, if you like.

How to cook porridge in the microwave

1. Mix the porridge oats, milk or water and a pinch of salt together in a large microwave-safe bowl, then microwave on high for 5 mins, stirring halfway through. Leave to stand for 2 mins before eating.

2. Add your favourite toppings – try nuts, dried fruit or peanut butter with sliced banana.


Porridge toppings and additions

  • Give your porridge instant pizzazz by adding simple flavours. Nut butters, such as almond, hazelnut or cashew, give porridge a hearty depth – stir vigorously to dissolve any clumps. Try simple spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or mixed spice, or stir in vanilla extract, creamed or dessicated coconut or a touch of jam.
  • Opt for honey, maple syrup or agave if you fancy a sweet drizzle, or add granulated sugar either at the start of cooking or sprinkled over before serving.
