for the basic porridge

  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • cup water
  • 1 pinch salt

for the blueberry topping


  • Place a high wall pot (The porridge needs room to cook!) on medium heat. Start with adding the oats, water, and salt. 
  • Mix well with the back of a wooden spoon. Cover till there is a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and continuously stir the porridge for about 6-7 minutes till it becomes creamy. 
  • It will be thick, with all the oats broken and you will see air bubbles popping out. * Remove from heat and empty in a bowl.
  • Prepare the blueberry topping by steeping the frozen berries with 1 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsps water. Heat on stove for just a minute and mush with the back of a wooden spoon to release the juices and still have bits of the beauties.
  • Make a small well in the porridge and pour in the beautiful blueberry topping in between.
  • Enjoy warm.



  • *If you find the porridge too thick, you can add a little non-dairy milk towards the end of cooking to loosen it a little.
  • Oats are naturally gluten-free but since many farms grow both wheat and oats crop, cross-contamination may occur from the wheat crop. For gluten-free porridge, it is best to buy certified gluten-free oats which are not grown close to wheat crops.
