I've just rediscovered porridge. It's brilliant - half a cup of oats, a cup of water, bung in the microwave in a big bowl for 3 minutes, and BAD-A-BING!

Cheap.
Tasty (with a bit of milk and honey added).
Nutritious.
Easy.

Gets my vote.

Go eat some porridge, RIGHT NOW!

You put water in it? I always just made it with milk, bunged it in the microwave for a while and then put something tasty on it.

Erm, isn't it oalmeal before you make it into porridge? I mean, that's a bit like calling cake 'flour' because it contains it, isn't it? tongue.gif

(Just for the record, I refer to them as oats. Nothing more, nothing less.)

It's having a revival at the moment because it fits so well with the GI diet.

I think it's Glycemic Index. Basically it's about how long things take to digest because that regulates when you get the energy released from them. Things like wholegrain bread and porridge do well because their component ingredients are relatively unprocessed. Heavily processed foods do worse because your stomach has to do very little work to get the energy out of them, meaning that you get a burst of blood sugar very quickly but then it goes away again, leaving you feeling the need for more energy and thus hungry even though you only ate an nour previously. It's all quite sensible really.

I'll have you know that we have no such truck with nonsense like that in Chateau Jonman.

It's having a revival there because it's super easy to make, and super tasty. No conspiracy theory necessary. Scotland is not forging a new world order through the medium of hot breakfast gruel.

Coming from the man who introduced me to black pudding I find it unsurprising that dietary concerns were not the first thing in your mind in relation to your current porridge fandom.

Eh? Black pudding's an essential part of any balanced diet. Lots of iron - especially good for pregnant ladies, innit.

Hmm, black pudding and porridge..... *strokes beard*

Quaker microwave porridge in golden syrup flavour is my favourite. Just gorgeous. And I agree with everyone else. You want milk in your porridge Jonman.. Maybe even evaporated milk if you're really crafty!!!

I ruined a perfectly good bowl of cereal with soy milk once....I didn't read the label and my mum was in another "be healthy" phase, so there was no cow juice.

Sues' sister is allergic to milk, so always had to have soy. Now she's had too much soy and so has become allergic to that. Some people just don't have any luck!

Black pudding + porridge + other bits = haggis another fine scottish food.

I've come to the conclusion that red river cereal, despite being very similar to porridge, should not be attempted in the microwave by the inexperienced. *puts mess into sink with hot soapy water*
