Porridge of the Week #7


Porridge of the week #7
Mixed berries topped with milled flaxseed, linseed and gogi berries

Category: Healthy
And I mean super healthy. Sweetened only by fruit and given great texture by the flaxseed mix- it is one of the most nutritiously rich foods you can find, packed with fibre, vitamin B, omega 3 and anti-oxidants.
Mix the porridge with milk, water or fruit juice. Tip in chopped (I find this releases the juices, and the flavour) blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. Stir till cooked through. Spoon into your bowl and top with the flaxseed mix. It sounds fancy, but its very basic. You can buy the mixes at good supermarkets and health food shops.



  1. I have been recommended to try porridge with Marmite. I've been too scared to try it so far. Not sure if you like Marmite, but if so, please let me know what it's like.

  2. What a woos, Ian. I would like porridge with sharp orange marmalade and toasted buckwheat with a little single cream on top.

  3. OK. After knit1slip1's comment above, I decided to give it a go. I love Marmite, I love porridge. I now know they do NOT go well together. I don't think you'll be including it in your Porridge of the Week.

  4. Oh dear! I will definitely bear this in mind.
    An all-savoury porridge testing session is actually in the works.
    Kudos on giving it a go, though! x

  5. I am pretty sure this is the porridge I just had, and I can now say from experience it is AMAZING. I'm going to write this porridge long, pining letters, and sigh whenever I think of it.

    seriously. amazing.
