The Perfect Oatmeal Porridge

Food & Recipes door thijs

I just realised this might be the 5th blog I'm writing about oatmeal and I could keep on writing! The variations are endless: I add anything from cinnamon, to lavender, orange juice, berries, nuts and seeds to my overnight oats, baked oats and oatmeal porridge.

The Perfect Oatmeal Porridge

I almost forgot how good a plain bowl of oatmeal porridge can be. Almost. Here is the simplest recipe for the perfect oatmeal porridge.


- 1/2 cup of oats

- 1/2 cup of soy/almond/cow's milk

- 1 1/2 cup of water



The secret to making a creamy bowl of oats with only 3 ingredients is a little bit of patience and a lot of stirring. In a pan over low heat, mix the oats together with 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of water. Stir the oats for about 4 minutes while the porridge starts to heat up and thicken. After these 4 minutes, add another 1/2 cup of water. Keep stirring again for 5 minutes, until the porridge becomes perfectly creamy and is ready to be enjoyed!
