Porridge is my go to breakfast in the morning and like a lot of people I know I even look forward to my morning bowl the night before, it’s the little things in life! I’ve always loved the way Oats So Simple porridge turns out so creamy, it’s exactly the consistency I love my oats to be and what would usually take me 15 minutes with regular rolled oats, takes 2 minutes with their handy sachets; perfect for a morning when I’m heading out early to workout or teach clients. They have just launched a range of protein oats too with 15% of the sachet being plant based soya protein…
I’ve been getting creative in the kitchen for weeks now with these sachets, yes A LOT of porridge has been eaten. Isn’t porridge season just the best (generally 4 out of 4 seasons of the year for me.) No breakfast beats porridge for me on a frosty morning, it’s even a rainy day dinner favourite of mine too and I love how you can get really creative with the toppings. So over the next few months I’ll be bringing you 4 of my favourite porridge recipes using the Quaker Oat So Simple Protein, kicking off with a pimped up Avocado Porridge.
Savoury porridge has been a fave of mine since trying it at 26 Grains café and was even on the menu at a cool brunch spot in Palma I visited this Summer, I featured a version with the poached egg on top on my blog last Winter but since these oats are already packed with protein, I wanted to keep it plant based and topped this version with half an avocado, spiced it up with some chilli flakes (just a pinch), flaxseeds and for the added festive flavour, the zest and juice of half an orange. I think this balanced bowl makes a really great pre or post workout meal. I usually leave at least an hour before working out if it’s my pre workout meal.
