Portion sizes

This, and our warming chocolate & banana porridge, make enough to eat on two mornings so you can chill portions for another day. Just warm through gently with a dash of water or milk when you're ready to reheat them.

Method

  1. Tip the oats, raisins and cinnamon into a large bowl and pour over 1 litre cold water. Cover the bowl and leave to soak overnight.

  2. The next morning, tip the contents into a large saucepan and stir in the grated squash. Cook for about 8-10 mins over a medium heat, stirring frequently, until the oats are cooked and the squash is soft. Add a little more water if it’s too thick.

  3. Put half of the mixture in the fridge for the next day. Spoon the remainder into bowls, top each portion with 1 pot yogurt and half the nuts. Dust with cinnamon, then warm through with a splash of milk.
