Pear and walnut porridge

Pear and walnut porridge with banana and prunes. Sweet, creamy and crunchy. Energy boost for the day made in minutes with a microwave and a bit of chopping.

I’m a big fan of throw few things together food. Breakfast especially. As much as I can appreciate very elaborate, made in stages food, the way I cook is much more down to earth, so to speak. I love my food and I love to cook but spending hours in the kitchen is not my thing. I actually taught myself pretty good ninja knife skills just so I can speed up the process of preparing food. I have one favourite knife, the handle is almost stripped of black coating but it doesn’t matter, it chops like crazy and that’s what I like. I think I said that before but in the mornings time somehow runs twice as fast for me. Do you experience this as well? I am rushing more often than not, running around trying to get myself ready. That’s why speedy breakfasts are essential. Few good ingredients, that make a great combo in the flavour department, quick assembly and breakfast is served. Based on that philosophy that’s where pear and walnut porridge comes in.

Pears and walnuts, such a good friends. Very crunchy, sweet and nutty with that slight bitterness from walnuts. That would be good as it is but I wanted to take this porridge to the next level of total awesomeness. Cue – the prunes. I don’t know why prunes are not used more. Total waste if you ask me. Prunes are so sweet, almost toffee-like gooey. They are so soft they just melt in your mouth. Perfect candy. Few of these babies in the porridge, with pear and walnuts and boom – perfect morning combo have arrived. Sweet, creamy, gooey and crunchy. That’s a whole medley of positive sensations in one breakfast bowl.

As usual, I make my porridge in the microwave – such a time saver. While porridge is cooking away I prepare fruit and walnuts. Literally breakfast in minutes. Actually, it’s cooked breakfast in minutes. And a very tasty one 🙂

Pear and walnut porridge
Serves: 1
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup of oats (rolled oats, Scottish porridge oats - approx 60g or 4 tablespoons)
  • 100 ml of filtered water
  • 200 ml of milk (cow's, almond, I used oat milk)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 pear
  • 3-4 walnuts
  • 2-3 prunes
Instructions
  1. Add oats, water and 150 ml of milk to a bowl.
  2. Microwave for 2.5 - 3 minutes. Porridge will thicken and rise - that means it's done.
  3. While porridge is cooking peel and mash the banana with a fork. Wash, core and chop the pear into bite size pieces. Roughly chop walnuts and prunes.
  4. When the porridge is done add the remaining 50 ml of milk and stir. If porridge is still too thick add a bit more milk and stir.
  5. Add mashed banana and chopped pear. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and prunes.
Notes
* If you like, use just milk instead of water and milk to make the porridge.
