Basic porridge recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
My favorite breakfast is definitely porridge. Not only is it super nutritious and filling, it is also incredibly versatile. With various toppings such as fresh fruit, nuts, cinnamon or nut butter, it never gets boring. The ideal breakfast for an energetic start to the day! I have prepared the basic recipe for you here. Personally, I like it best with apples, nuts, nut butter and cinnamon. You can also vary the basic recipe by stirring in something else. If you like it a little sweeter, for example, you can also stir some syrup into your porridge. As you can see, there are no limits to your creativity here.

Basic recipe

Toppings of your choice

  • Fresh fruit (e.g. banana, berries, apple...)
  • Nuts (e.g. almonds, walnuts)
  • Cinnamon
  • Dried fruit (e.g. raisins, dates)
  • Seeds (e.g. chia seeds, linseed)
  • Nut butter (e.g. almond butter)

Instructions
 

Prepare toppings

  1. Make sure that all the desired toppings are prepared (cut apples, etc.) so that they can be used immediately after cooking and you can enjoy the porridge warm.

Cooking porridge

  1. Heat the water and plant milk in a pan. Add the rolled oats and stir well.
  2. Allow the mixture to simmer over a medium heat. Stir continuously to prevent burning.
  3. When the porridge becomes mushy and the desired consistency is reached, remove the pan from the heat.

Add toppings

  1. Divide the porridge into bowls and garnish generously with the prepared toppings.

Notes

Tip:
Vary the liquid! Instead of water and plant milk, you can also use coconut milk, almond drink or oat milk to give the porridge a very special touch. Experiment with different milk alternatives and discover new worlds of taste. So this breakfast never gets boring.
