You don’t get cheaper than this and if you’re really desperate for a good, cheap meal – this one’s for you. Rolled oats don’t cost much and you don’t need milk as your liquid, water is just fine.
1 cup (2.5dcl) rolled oats
2 cups (5dcl) water
½ teaspoon salt
Jam, sugar or butter
- Add the oats, water and salt in a small saucepan and stir
- Put the hob on High until it starts to simmer.
- Take the heat down to Low and let the porridge simmer for a few minutes. Stir quite often to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
- Serve up in bowls, with a bit of jam, butter or whatever you’ve got at home.
This recipe makes about two portions or one large portion. If you’ve got milk at home, add some on top of the porridge.
