Easy Peasy Pear Porridge

This yum-tastic recipe was made purely due to the fact I had the following ingredients left in my cupboard! It was first thing in the morning when I realised I was out of provisions – my beloved and I had just returned from two weeks holiday to an almost-empty fridge (the horror!). I had two choices:

  1. skip breakfast
  2. make something from a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g!

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you would know this food-and-health-fanatic NEVER skips a meal! I wholeheartedly chose option number two and set about creating the most delicious gluten-free porridge from the ingredients below that left me full and content until lunch.

I love it when food satisfies the mind and body… I believe too many foods sold these days only work to satisfy the mind while stimulating hunger which is so. not. cool! Instead of reaching for the packet of gluten-free granola, or ‘healthy’ porridge mix at your local health food store, give this one a go first. You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to make. It can store in the fridge overnight too, just keep it in a sealed container (preferably glass for freshness). I used to make this the night before so I had more time to enjoy it in the morning before I took myself off to yoga. Enjoy!
