Porridge is a cheap and versatile breakfast cereal. It's quick to prepare, and it's nutritious, being high in fibre and providing a slow release of energy... and it doesn't have to be boring!
Trial and error will let you know how much of the oats you'll need. Usually between 25-50g. Add milk - either semi-skimmed, or try soya milk or other non-dairy alternatives. (Soya has a higher protein content than other plant-based alternatives). You can either cook for 5 minutes in a sauce pan over a moderate heat, or if you're short on time (or don't like washing pans) chuck all the ingredients into a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes.
