How much water do you put in porridge?

As a rule of thumb, to make perfect Porridge I always use a 2:1 ratio. That's two parts fluid to one part oats. That can be two parts water, milk or milk substitute, to one part oats. I use this ratio for all oats; quick cook, jumbo or rolled oats.

Just so, can you cook oats with water?

The key to getting a creamy, not-gluey bowl of oatmeal is using enough water. Notice we said watercooking oatmeal in milk tends to make a stickier, thicker oatmeal. Follow the directions on the canister using H2O, then add a splash of milk or almond milk in the bowl.

How do you make porridge?

  1. Put the oats in a saucepan, pour in the milk or water and sprinkle in a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring from time to time and watching carefully that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  2. To serve. Pour into bowls, spoon yogurt on top and drizzle with honey.

How do I make porridge in the microwave?

At under 50 cents per serve, it's a super-cheap start to the day.
  1. Mix rolled oats and water in a bowl (use a large bowl to prevent spilling over when cooking).
  2. Cook uncovered in the microwave on high power for 1½ minutes.
  3. Cook for another minute.
  4. Top with milk and a sprinkle of brown sugar.
