Pumpkin Pie Porridge

 Warm spiced porridge perfect for an autumnal breakfast


I tried to recreate all of the beautiful flavours of a classic pumpkin pie but in a porridge formation and I have to say it's pretty good. I love all things pumpkin still, it's such a versatile vegetable and I know many may think it's weird to have vegetables in your morning porridge but don't knock it till you try it, plus it contributed to one of your five-a-day so that definitely counts.The pumpkin makes the porridge nice and fluffy and adds a little flavour, especially with the warming spices, it's very hearty. I topped mine with a creamy soya yoghurt, pecans and chopped dates. If you don't/can't find pumpkin you can always use squash as they work the same.

Recipe

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Serves: 1

Ingredients

150g Pumpkin purée 
40g Oats
100ml Soya milk
100ml Water
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Mixed Spice
Pinch of salt
Toppings optional
Soya yoghurt
Pecans
Dates


Method

✿Heat a small saucepan on a low to medium heat. Add all of the ingredients and mix together.
Leave to simmer for about 5-10 minutes until the porridge has soaked up all of the liquid. Depending on what oats you use you may need more liquid. Stir occasionnally so the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom.
Once cooked spoon into a bowl and dollop about 2 tbsp of yoghurt on top if using. Sprinkle on some pecans and dates and serve whilst warm. Enjoy!
