The secret to good porridge is a few things. Soak the grain overnight in cold water, just enough to cover. This activates the growing enzyme in the oat, and makes it easier for the body to digest. Soak dried fruit like raisins, sultanas or dates with the oats as well. Bring to the boil and simmer till slightly thickened. Serve with thick unsweetened yoghurt. Add a nut like almonds and the perfect morning breakfast has been created. Yum!!
