Pre-soaking oats overnight is a great way to speed up the preparation time for porridge and the results are super creamy and satisfying. On top of that, pre-soaking makes oats easily digestible so you’ll get all the nutritional goodness out of your morning bowl.
You’ll find some serving suggestions below. One of our favourite toppings is sliced banana, cinnamon and crushed toasted walnuts… but we’d love you to share your suggestions in the comments!
Ingredients (serves 4)
2 cups unstabilised fine rolled oats
1.2 L cold water
¼ tsp sea salt
to serve (optional)
fat: yoghurt, butter, milk, nut butter
fruits: sliced banana, fruit compote, fresh berries, chopped dates
sprinkles: lsa, chopped toasted nuts, toasted seeds
spices: cinnamon, nutmeg
sweetener: honey, maple syrup, rapadura sugar, all-fruit jam
- Combine oats, water and salt in a medium sized saucepan. Cover and soak overnight.
- In the morning, uncover and rapidly bring the oats to a simmer on the stove, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Turn the heat down to low immediately and continue stirring for three to five minutes, until the porridge is creamy and thick.
- Divide the porridge between four warm bowls and add desired toppings. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to three days.
