Purple Porridge

Purple Porridge

This porridge is simply flavoured with blueberries: I use frozen because they are good quality and inexpensive year round. A little date adds sweetness and lifts the dish.

Free from: nut, soya

Gluten, wheat free: use suitable oats

This is a vegan recipe

Purple Porridge
  • 1/2 cup sprouted or rolled oats
  • 1 medjool date (pitted and finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries (defrosted)
Ahead of time:
  1. If you want you can soak your oats overnight (or for a few hours): simply combine oats and date, and add just enough water to cover. Refrigerate until ready to cook.

Breakfast time:
  1. If you haven’t already, combine oats and date and just enough water to cover. Microwave or heat in a pan until the water is absorbed. Add a little more cold water, stir and cook again. I cook like this until the oats have softened but there is still some texture. Cook a little longer if you prefer a creamier porridge.

  2. Stir through the defrosted blueberries and heat through then serve.
