Porridge is quite the popular topic at the moment. Wonderful warming stuff that it is. Before I give you my method, I must emphasise that they key for me is thick cut oats. The thicker the better. Instant oats are an abomination. Carmen’s do a good conventional oat and Kialla Pure Foods do a great organic oat. I’ve not found a bulk supply of an oat that meets my personal oat standards.

warning: amounts are totally imprecise but it works for me.
2 big handfuls oats
2 – 3 tablespoons linseeds
small handful goji berries
heaping tablespoon yoghurt
milk – maybe a cup and a half?
large dob butter
slurp of cream
1/2 – 1 cup stewed apple
maple syrup to serve

  1. Place oats, linseeds, berries and yoghurt in a large bowl. Cover with water and stir. Cover and leave over night
  2. Place in thermomix or saucepan with milk and apples. Cook at 90 degrees for 10 minutes on reverse speed 1 or cook on hotplate, stirring constantly for about 10 minutes or until porridge has thickened.
  3. Stir in butter and cream, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
