Apple Porridge

Cooking time
Serves2 people

Cold cereal is not for chilly autumnal or winter days. This is a warming, comforting way to start the morning. This takes seconds to stir and has a portion of fruit (organic apples) in it.

1. Warm your saucepan. Add the oats. Toast for a moment. Add 2 mugs of water. Bring to the boil. Lower heat. Simmer for 5-10mins.
2. As it simmers, finely grate your apple (no need to peel) with the sort of grater you'd use for Parmesan - grate it right into a pan if you can take the heat, or in a bowl and then swirl through the simmering oats. Discard the apple core and stem.
3. Keep simmering your apple-saucy oats, stirring constantly until the oats have absorbed the water and the apples have cooked right into the mix. Trickle in a little more water, if needed, as you cook. Remove from heat. Add a splash of milk and stir through.
4. Spoon into bowls. Drizzle with honey or sprinkle a bit of brown sugar over the top. Finish with a drop of cold milk or cream, a handful of seasonal berries or chopped dried fruit, and some toasted nuts or seeds, if you like.
