Simple Porridge with Blueberries

This simple porridge with blueberries is exactly what it sounds like. A delicious, easy, quick breakfast that won’t disappoint. I make this breakfast throughout the year, but even more so during the colder months. It’s a healthy, warming and delicious way to start the day.

I actually didn’t like porridge when growing up and only really started eating porridge for breakfast when I moved to New Zealand and then Australia. In retrospect, I don’t think it was because I didn’t like the flavour or texture of porridge but rather that in German porridge is called “Haferschleim” which translates to “oat slime”. Can you blame me for refusing to eat slime as a child?
