Cold Porridge

What you need: 

1 - 1,5 dl (1/2 to 1 cup) rolled oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sweetener of choice
3 - 5 dl (1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups) water
fresh and dried fruit, whatever you have on hand

What you do: 

Do this at the evening, before you go to bed:
Place the oats in a pan, add the water, and stir it.
Turn the heat on, and bring it to a boil. Keep un stirring, while you lower the heat.
Add more water, if necessary.
Let it boil for about a minute or two, and take the pan off the heat.
And sweetener and salt, and give it a good stir. (You can also add some cinnamon; it tastes great)
Now, if you want to, you can stir in dried and fresh fruit. I find it very good with blueberries (frozen ones will do perfect), grapes, raisins, dried blueberries, strawberries or cranberries.
Place the porridge in a bowl, and cover it up with some plastic foil. Put it in the fridge.
Do this the day you want to eat it :
Take the bowl out of the fridge. (Do remember to remove the foil).
Now, you can also add some more fruit if you want to, I tend to top it with a crazy amount of bananas, grapes, fresh strawberries and blueberries, and even kiwifruit.
Serve, with some non-dairy milk on top (choose a sweet type, like rice milk, or sweeten it with some fructose), and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

like others have mentioned, this recipe is simplicty at its best! i prepared it this afternoon planning on enjoying it for breakfast but instead i decided to have it for a late night snack. after it was set, i added vanilla silk, cinnamon, maple syrup, and raisins. it tasted exactly like cold rice pudding, one of my favorite desserts. this was truely amazing and so satisfying. a perfect summer breakfast or dessert!


This was really yummy.  I added some dried tropical fruit and in the morning I topped it with some soy milk and cinnamon.  It was great to have breakfast already made and ready to eat!  Thanks! :D


This recipe is truely amazing. I love cold oatmeal, and adding frozen fruit to it over night makes it taste delicious. All the blueberries juices melted into the oatmeal and I had blue oatmeal. =D I topped it off with raisins, banana, and honey. Then poured some almond breeze on top. Delicious!
