Serve with traditional accompaniments such as milk, cream or yoghurt with brown sugar or golden syrup or adopt the Posh Porridge approach and serve with one or all of the below.


175g (1 cup) steel-cut oats

pinch salt

750ml (3 cups) water



· Place oats, salt and water into a medium saucepan set over a medium heat. Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring every now and then, until porridge has a creamy appearance and oats are soft.

· Use immediately or cool and refrigerate for up to five days.

· To reheat portions: Add tablespoon cold water to each portion in a bowl. Stir and reheat on medium in microwave. Alternatively place porridge with water into a small saucepan and reheat on stovetop.
