Stove Top Porridge

13 Apr


I have always made my porridge in the microwave but i realize bow that i was actually missing out on a lot. In my head i always thought of making porridge on the stove as a lengthy, slow process that required you getting up at dawn just to put the porridge on. But it couldn’t be farther from the truth. This porridge recipe takes about 10mins in total (When your still half asleep) and the end result is divine. The porridge is creamy, even though i made it with all water and you can still feel the rustic texture of the oats. In other words it will be quite a while before i even think about making microwave porridge again.


Stove Top Porridge (Serves 1)

1/2 cup

1 cup water or milk

Flavorings of your choice, for me it had to be a mashed banana, cacao nibs and a big spoonful of crunchy peanut butter 🙂

  • Put the oats and liquid of your choice into a small pot and give it a quick stir to make sure all the oats are moistened.
  • Place over a medium beat and leave for about 3mins until it starts to bubble.
  • Stir and turn the heat down to low. Continue cooking for a couple mins, stirring regularly, until the porridge is thick, creamy and your preferred consistency.
  • Stir in your flavorings and spoon into a bowl. Dig in straight away 🙂
