How to make the perfect porridge..
Here’s one of those posts which I throw open to you guys. Do you have porridge for breakfast and if so, what if anything goes in it? I eat it every day, in the past I ate it with banana, prunes, dates, dried fruits such as sultanas, raisins, apricots and even dried mango. Later I went for grated apple and cinnamon, or star anise and more recently just a dash of cinnamon with a tablespoon of crushed seeds. No sugar but semi skimmed milk rather than water.
I also bulk mine out with a couple of tablespoons of milled oatbran and oatgerm for added fibre.
Here’s my version:
5og Porridge Oats or 30g Porridge Oats and 20g Mixed Oatbran and Oatgerm combined
300ml semi skimmed milk or water
Pinch of ground cinnamon (about a quater of a teaspoon)
1 piece of star anise
Cooked in the microwave for about four minutes.
Now porridge stirs (excuse the pun) considerable debate across the UK as to how it should be cooked, each to their own is what I say!
