Breakfast time – Old fashioned Porridge


Enjoy this warm & earthy breakfast meal.:

Ingredients & Method

1 cup rolled oats

2 cups water

1/8 cup chopped almonds

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1-2 tablespoons milk (optional)

1 tablespoon raisins

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon powder

pinch of crushed cardamom

drizzle of honey

Bring water and almonds to a gentle boil. Add rolled oats, brown sugar, milk and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Sprinkle raisins, cinnamon and cardamom and serve with a drizzle of honey.

I serve this for breakfast a couple of times a week. You can always tweak the recipe by adding other toppings such as fresh berries, walnuts or anything you fancy.

Rolled oats porridge may sound old fashioned but it is a wholesome and healthy meal. It’s loaded with B vitamins, iron and manganese. It also provides soluble fiber which helps reduce cholesterol. And best of all, it is sodium and cholesterol free.
