A quick and easy recipe for Porridge made in the Thermomix. You can jazz it up with delicious toppings or just eat it plain with just a sprinkling of cinnamon. It's a filling and satisfying way to start the day, especially on cold mornings.
When the weather turns cold there's nothing like a big bowl of steaming hot porridge to keep you warm. It's a nutritious way to start the day as oats are a great source of fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. I also find it keeps me fuller for longer so therefore have the the less need to snack.
As with pancakes and waffles, the deliciousness comes with the endless toppings you can add. The photo above was made with my Thermomix Apple and Raspberry Compote, which is one of my favourite ways to enjoy porridge. Here are a few more for inspiration:-
