Organic Pinhead Oats Porridge

• The night before cooking, soak the oatmeal in a bowl or in the saucepan you are going to boil them (less things to wash) for at least 8 hours. Use one part oatmeal and 4 parts water (filtered water if possible). So if your oatmeal part is one cup then use 4 cups water. For one person I use approx. 50gr of oatmeal (half cup). 

• Next morning, add another part of liquid (I usually use oat milk) and bring to the boil then simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes or until the oats have absorbed most of the liquid but still have a runny but thick consistency (still bubbling). In the meantime, add a pinch of salt.

• Once you are happy with the consistency take the porridge off the heat and set aside for a couple of minutes. (I found it easier to clean the saucepan when I let the porridge rest for a few minutes before serving).

• Then serve while still hot. You can add banana, honey (if you are not vegan) or vegan sweetener, or eat it as it is. It is just delicious.

• If you are the type of person that needs to cycle to work and you don’t want or you don’t have the time to eat it immediately then put it in a container. In that case you will need to get a runnier, less thick consistency as the porridge will set with time and become harder. You can achieve this by adding a little more liquid when you cook it or cook for less time. You can always add some hot water or milk before you eat it to achieve the right consistency.
