Fruit n Nut Porridge

Whoops, didn't realise I'd not posted since December but there is something very exciting happening here soon so stick with me ;-)

Fruit n Nut Porridge

I love porridge.  Cheap, quick to make and fills you up.  I'm not traditional and like to put fruit and stuff in mine.  So I made up a huge batch of oats, barley flakes, chopped hazelnuts, cranberries, apricot and date pieces, sunflower seeds, linseeds and dessicated coconut.  No sugar.

Add about 50g of the mix to approx 300ml of water/milk (I like more milk than water, but it's just your preference)  Bring gently to the boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.  Serve with a swirl of honey or agave nectar.

Soba noodles with prawns and broccoli

I recently discovered soba noodles.  Made from buckwheat which isn't a wheat, so great if you're wheat intolerant.  And they're a doddle to prepare.  Just pour boiling water over them and leave for about 5 mins.  Drain and they're ready to use.

The above dish isn't a recipe as such.  I just stir fried some sliced red peppers with some broccoli florets in a little sesame oil and soya sauce.  Then I added some cooked king prawns until they were warmed.  Serve over the cooked soba noodles.  Yummy!

  1. Thanks for another couple of really appetising recipes. I've been neglecting my breakfast porridge recently and then replacing it with BAD things at work but you've reminded me how good lovely filling fruity porridge is. 3 and a half minutes in the microwave avoids a porridge pot :)
