norfolkian: BB-8 and Rey walking through the desert (bb8 Rey)
[personal profile] norfolkian posting in [community profile] weekly_food_challenge
I don't really cook much at breakfast time. It's usually toast or cereal with the occasional boiled eggs or scrambled eggs at the weekend. But I thought I would try something a little different for this challenge, but still keeping it fairly simple as I'm still not in my own kitchen.

This BBC Good Food recipe was my inspiration, but I made a few changes - namely leaving out the sugar and adjusting the quantities. Generally, I do just prefer porridge on its own (made with milk), but this was a nice alternative, although I feel that strawberries are not yet at their best and this would be nicer in summer. I felt it gave me a good bit of energy before heading out for an archery practice session, though.

Serves 2

80g-ish rolled porridge oats
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
milk (amount according to packet instructions on the porridge - or you could do what I did and just guess...)
2 bananas, sliced
200g-ish strawberries, halved

Add the oats, cinnamon, milk and one sliced banana to a pan and cook according to the porridge oat pack instructions. Once it's ready, serve between two bowls and add the rest of the banana and the strawberries. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon if desired.

Looks tasty - I do agree that strawberries need a little more time (even over here in the States). During the winter if I'm craving oatmeal, I'll usually toss in some frozen blueberries near the end of cooking so that they get thawed but not too mushy.

I got it made for me by the person whose house I was stopping in the day this got posted: it was AMAZING. We put a bit more cinnamon in and left off the strawbs (mainly because obtaining strawbs would have involved getting dressed)
