If you reserve zesty ginger and sweet nutmeg for Christmas baking, it’s time to dig out these beautiful spices for a truly warming breakfast. You can jazz up your morning porridge in no time with these two fragrant spices – ginger adds refreshing zingy notes while nutmeg keeps the flavour sweet. Rather than adding the ginger and nutmeg at the end, simmer the porridge and spices in a saucepan together, so the oats will be infused as they cook. Once it’s ready, top with dried cherries and a drizzle of honey. This is a fantastic option that fits into most nutrition plans, whether you’re after a carb-packed runner’s breakfast or simply need something hearty-yet-healthy that powers you through the day.
Mix the porridge oats, milk, Ginger and Nutmeg in a saucepan and place over a medium-heat. Bring to the boil and simmer for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until thickened.
Stir in the cherries and drizzle with the honey.
