omega-3 boosted porridge with raspberries
24th January 2017 Katie

Get your omega-3’s in the morning in this creamy porridge with flax seeds, topped with vitamin-packed raspberries and chia seeds.  You can’t beat this to get you off the right start when frost lays on the ground and a busy day awaits.  This time of year, I use frozen raspberries to keep costs down.

Instructions
  1. Begin by crushing the raspberries with a fork to release the juices and add the chia seeds. Mix well and leave to one side whilst you cook the porridge.
  2. Hob method: Add the oats, ground flax seeds and diary-free milk (or water/dairy-free milk mixture) to a small saucepan. Over a medium heat, stir until bubbling and thickened.
  3. Microwave method: Add the oats, ground flax seeds and diary-free milk (or water/dairy-free milk mixture) to a microwave-proof dish. Place on a microwave-proof plate, cover and heat a full power for 1 minute. Stir, then cover again and heat for another 30 seconds. It is cooked when it is steaming and thickened. As all microwaves differ, you may need to cover and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  4. When cooked, top with the raspberry and chia mixture. If you need it a little sweeter, add a teaspoon of honey.
