  • ½ x 350g pack frozen blueberries



    Blueberries are one of the few edibles native to North America and credited with being…

  2. Meanwhile, tip the blueberries into a pan with 1 tbsp water and the honey if using and gently poach until the blueberries have thawed and they are tender, but still holding their shape.

  3. Spoon the porridge into bowls, top with the remaining yogurt and spoon over the blueberries.

A nice breakfast, I used half rice milk, half water and left out the yoghurt and honey. Nice and filling and easy to make. Will make again. 3 Stars

Heat kills Vitamin C, Honey heated is just plain sugar!

I found it both slightly watery yet very yoghurty, but then I'm not a large fan of yoghurt and my family loved it- so its most likely just me! I would add more fruit next time though (varied in type) to help accompany the yoghurt better :)

I often have this for breakfast, to make it more quickly, fill the cup you have measured oats and milk/water with frozen blueberries, half cup for one, one cup for two etc. Blitz in microwave for one minute, put on cooked porridge and drizzle with honey afterwards, saves on washing up! Also use jumbo organic oats for more texture. If you cook oats in milk/water you don't need the yoghurt. This works equally well for other frozen soft fruit. Another lovely winter topping is to soak chopped dried fruit, figs, apricots, dates etc in fresh orange juice over night.

The recipe, porridge with blueberry compote, can you use fresh blueberries and when you put the blueberries in a pan with water, is it cold or hot water and what temperature on an electric oven hob please.

Hi Ljmarsh, thanks for your question. We haven't tested this recipe using fresh blueberries but can see no reason why they wouldn't be absolutely fine to use. The tablespoon of water should be cold water and we can't give settings for electric hobs (as they vary so much) but would suggest heating it gently on one of the lowest settings until heated through but not disintergrating. Hope this is helpful. Let us know how you get on.
