nut milk porridge with berries

Porridge (also spelled porageporrigeparritch)[1] is a food made by boiling ground, crushed or chopped starchy plants—typically grain—in water or milk. It is often cooked or served with flavorings such as sugar, honey, syrup, etc. to make a sweet cereal or mixed with spices, vegetables, etc. to make a savoury dish. It is usually served hot in a bowl.

A bowl of these humble oats is not only warming, but deliciously filling and a great source of energy! 
And I just recently got a huge fan of preparing porridge in the morning. It's a very convenient and versatile breakfast.
Another good thing about porridge is, that there are millions of variations. You can add to it whatever you fancy! 

Simple berry oatmeal porridge
(2 servings)

+ 1 cup oats (I use fine ones) (ca. 90g)
+ 1,5 cups water
+ 1 cup nut milk (I like to use almond or cashew milk with porridge)
+ 1 pinch of salt
+ 1/2 tea spoon ground vanilla (optional)

serving options:
+ 1/2 cup frozen berries of your choice
+ fresh fruit
+ extra nut milk (cashew or almond milk taste amazing)
+ 1 table spoon nut butter (I used a crunchy almond butter)
+ granola
+ (roasted) nuts, this time I used hazelnuts (from Pakka)

place the oats, water, nut milk, salt and vanilla in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer on medium to low heat. Stir well to combine. Let simmer till the water ist just absorbed and the porridge has thickened. This takes around 5-10 minutes. Add fruit and serve with more nut milk and toppings of your choice!
