Savoury Porridge with Spicy Tomato (HCLF, Gluten-free)

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.

Recipe Notes

Jo's Tips

  • You can use any type of oats for this recipe. My favourites are jumbo rolled oats as they retain a nice, chewy texture.
  • If you don't have tomato juice, you can use fresh or tinned tomatoes. I prefer tomato juice because it has a rich red colour but doesn't have the characteristic tinned flavour that needs a longer cooking time to remove.
  • Instead of poultry seasoning, any vegetable stock will do.
