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



    One of the most widely used ingredients, milk is often referred to as a 'complete' food…

  • Greek yogurt, thinned with a little milk and clear honey, to serve



    Yogurt is made by adding a number of types of harmless bacteria to milk, causing it to ferment.…


  1. Put 50g porridge oats in a saucepan, pour in 350ml milk or water and sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time and watching carefully that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. 

  2. Or you can try this in a microwave. Mix the porridge oats, milk or water and a pinch of salt in a large microwaveproof bowl, then microwave on High for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before eating.

  3. To serve, pour into bowls, spoon Greek yogurt, thinned with a little milk, on top and drizzle with honey.

@DAJAZDJ Salt is very traditional in porridge, in fact using salt in porridge is probably older than cornflakes - you should look at the ingredients on your cornflakes; they already have salt added.

I ve started using fruit juice instead of water. My favourite is cranberry juice with a handful of blueberries, you dont need any other sweetening.

Hiya, what I do for porridge is get a bag of fruit and nuts and mix it with the dry porridge mixture stored in a jar or canister beforehand and then put a dishful out and cover with boiling water. Quick and simple with all the goodness.

I like basic porridge but I've tried several recipes over many years and enjoyed many of them, however I thought I'd submit this one of my own. As an experiment one evening, some years ago, when I wanted some porridge, but something different, I decided to make basic porridge and add some cheddar. What a difference! The amount and variety of cheese is optional, but it is well worth a try. All I do is put the dry porridge into a 'microwave' bowl with water and add choped up pieces of cheese, stir and microwave

Not bad, but oh very average. If you have the time to 'google' porridge recipes, you have to time to do something a bit more extravangant.

Where is the mentioning of a 'pinch of salt' in the listing of ingredients? Agreed, a pinch is not much (!), but it's still an ingredient! Get it right!

I tried Champa's variation and it was delicious. It tasted like Christmas pudding. It seemed a lot for one person though, so next time I'll reduce the quantities of oats and milk. I used unsweetened soya milk and added some dried chopped apricots and half a banana. Definitely going on my list!

The calorie count is correct as it's a small portion. If you double up to around 100g of oats, that's when you hit the 300 kCal mark. Amy (",)
