If you’ve been following me for a while, and especially if you have a copy of my Edible Heirlooms cookbook, you’ll know about my love affair with porridge
There is something about a warm, comforting bowl of porridge that feels like I’m giving myself a big hug
I love the texture of steel cut oats over rolled oats and I really believe that it makes a better bowl of porridge
I like to make a batch of this when I meal prep on Sunday’s and portion it out so that I have four quick, easy and freaking delicious breakfasts ready to go
I have suggested that you top it with a dollop of yoghurt, but I like to add a big spoonful of cottage cheese and then stir it through before adding the blueberries
Don’t pull that face until you’ve tried it!
The roasted Blueberries are optional but highly recommended


  • 1 cup of steel cut oats

  • 3 cups of water

  • 1 cup of your milk of choice

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla

  • 2 tablespoons of sweetener of choice

  • 250 grams fresh blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200°C.
  • Place all of the blueberry ingredients into a small bowl and toss until well combined.
  • Tip the mixture out onto a lined tray and roast for 5-10 minutes.
  • Place all of the oats ingredients into a pot over medium-high heat and bring to the boil, stirring.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for approx. 15 minutes, defending on how you like your final texture.
  • I like to retain a bit of “bite” in mine.
  • Remember that the more you stir it, the creamier it will be.
  • You can add some milk or water at the end if you don’t like it as thick as I do.
  • Serve the oats with a healthy dollop of yoghurt, topped with roasted blueberries
