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
- Place oats, linseeds, berries and yoghurt in a large bowl. Cover with water and stir. Cover and leave over night
- 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.
- Stir in butter and cream, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
