If you haven’t noticed there’s a bit of a theme happening here. January Loaded Oats for the New Year , February Peach Pie Porridge , March (well not quite March) Oat Bran, Almond, Ginger and Pear Porridge. Who needs 12 months of shirtless firemen when you can have 12 months of porridge… never mind, don’t answer that.
I had some pears left over from my toasted sandwich and this was the breakfast solution on a busy morning. Pears go brilliantly with almonds and ginger and both up the nutritional goodness even more. This time around, instead of rolled oats, oat bran got a run. Have you ever used oat bran? It cooks up a bit like semolina or polenta and reminds me of my childhood days eating Cream of Wheat.
