Fresh strawberry and blueberry porridge

What to do with a bowl of freshly harvested strawberries?
Why not make a great breakfast and use them as a porridge topping…

A freshly picked bowl of strawberries

Firstly I half or quarter the strawberries, depending on size and then I add a teaspoon or two of sugar and let them sit for a few minutes.
The sugar draws out some juice and somehow really enhances the strawberry flavor.

Meanwhile I prepare the porridge.

For two strawberry lovers I use:

  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of water

I mix those 3 ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil, while constantly stirring to avoid burning.
Then I simmer the porridge for about 1 minute until it has a nice creamy consistency.

When this is done I add a handful of frozen or fresh blueberries and mix them into the porridge.
Then I transfer it into bowls and top it up with the sugared strawberries.

This is extremely delicious, nutritious and a pleasure to look at.
