  • 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.

If you soak the porridge overnight, it tastes a lot better and cooks quicker too. I cook it in the microwave for 2 mins, take out stir and cook for another 2 minutes. I use Tesco Organic Sweetened Soya Milk and its yummy. When cooked i add a teaspoon of manuka honey. A good healthy breakfast!

Hi. I dislike the taste and texture of porridge cooked in 5 minutes as described in your recipe, so I thought I'd share with you my "Christmas Pud" style porridge which I love. I soak a cupful of oatmeal or porridge oats overnight with a big handful of mixed dried fruit or raisins (for anyone who doesn't like the peel) and sometimes a couple of prunes and apricots for a change. In the morning I add a generous pinch of cinnamon and a good grating of nutmeg. I cook this (covered with a plate) for about 6 minutes on medium high in the microwave. Remove and stir and if all the water has been taken up, add milk or water (I use soya - it gives a lovely creamy taste). Put back in the microwave and cook on high for four or five minutes. Take out and stir well again. Serve with another splash of milk and a sprinkle of brown sugar or honey. You'll never want to eat plain porridge again!

Mashed banana does it for me. It's delicious with porridge! If you want a more wicked concoction, try chocolate drops. They melt and turn the porridge into a yummy breakfast.

In the end of cooking I usually add dryed apricots (cutted into small pieces). It makes porridge more rich and testy.
