For the porridge
1 cup of oats (any cup will do as long as you
use the same one for the liquid)
2 ¼ cups of water or soya milk (or a mixture of the two)
Put the oats in a saucepan and pour in the soya milk or water.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time and watching carefully that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Alternatively, mix the oats and milk or water in a large microwave proof bowl, then microwave on High for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Leave to stand for 2 minutes before eating or topping.
Choose a couple of toppings from the list below (being careful not to have too more than one potion of fruit) and flavour to your hearts content.
2tsp maple syrup
2 drops vanilla essence
1tsp golden syrup
½ chopped banana
1 small handful of blueberries
1 small handful of raspberries
3 strawberries, chopped
2tsp sesame seeds
2tsp flaked almonds
2tsp pumpkin seeds
2tsp sunflower seeds
