Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the Quaker Rolled Oats in a medium saucepan with the milk, half the sliced dates and a small pinch of salt. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, for 4-5 mins until creamy and thickened. Add a splash of water if you prefer a thinner porridge. Stir through 2 tsp tahini.

RECIPE TIPS
TOPPINGS

We’ve added toasted sesame seeds to accentuate the sesame flavour, but top with any toasted seeds you have in your cupboard – pumpkin, linseed and chia all work well.
