Porridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries

Porridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries

In Scotland, porridge is traditionally served with a pinch of salt and water.  If my dad reads this post, he may well disown me, but my favourite combo is Porridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries.  I think I must have been down south too long.  I am also a sucker for heart shaped foods.  I’m pretty sure they taste nicer. Porridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries

Ingredients per person:

  • 50g Porridge oats  (use good quality oats)
  • 150ml Semi skimmed milk
  • 2 table spoons maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1-2 StrawberriesPorridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries

Method:

Porridge works really well in the microwave.  Place the oats in the bottom of a microwavable jug.  The jug needs to have enough space for the porridge to expand.  Add a slug of maple syrup, and the milk.  Heat in the microwave on medium for 2-3 minutes.  Take it out and stir the porridge.  The oats should all have broken down.  If they haven’t, return to the microwave for a few more minutes.Porridge with Maple Syrup and StrawberriesCut the strawberries into slices. (You don’t have to cut them in to heart shapes!). 5-porridgeServe the porridge with maple syrup and coffee!Porridge with Maple Syrup and Strawberries
