Savoury Porridge with Spinach and Mushrooms
I am so excited to share this recipe with you! I have toyed with the idea of a savoury version of my favourite dish on many mornings but always opt for something sweet for fear of disappointing myself! I finally bit the bullet and went for a savoury porridge. I am now totally and utterly obsessed! This is so hearty and comforting without leaving you heavy and full making it a perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I chose to include mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes which is my favourite combination but have tried other vegetables too which have also worked well so feel free to use this as a base and get experimenting - I would love to hear your favourites!
what you’ll need
40g porridge oats
200ml of water
100ml of almond milk
2 handfuls of spinach
4 cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of dried sage
1 teaspoon of tamari
1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil
what to do
Start by adding 200ml of boiling water to a pan with the oats and leave to sit for about 5-10 minutes until the water has been absorbed.During this time, slice the mushrooms and quarter the tomatoes.
Add the almond milk, sage and tamari to the pan and turn on a low heat, stirring occasionally.
In a separate pan, crush the garlic and add the olive oil, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach and soften gently.
As the porridge starts to thicken, increase the heat and stir constantly for a minute or two. Then add the vegetables and mix them in evenly before serving.
