You may be wondering “why savoury porridge?”, “why fix something if it ain’t broke?” I’m just going to come out and say it… I’m not a big fan of sweet porridge or oatmeal! Phew I feel much better! Don’t get me wrong, I like the flavour but after a few bites the combination of the sweetness and the mushy texture gets too overwhelming,
This recipe started out as a complete fluke. A combination of wanting something quick to eat and the fact that I had loads of oats laying around. Who would have thought? It turned out pretty tasty.
I do a few different versions of savoury oats, today I’ll share my spicy tomato porridge. I like to finish it off with some toppings, same as you’d do for sweet. For this recipe I used cherry tomatoes, sliced bell pepper, nutritional yeast, rocket and sambal oelek. It is entirely up to you to use your favourite toppings.
