Mother's best old-fashioned vegan oatmeal porridge recipe

The best thing about porridge is that you can add anything!

The best thing about becoming a mother is that you learn to go with the flow...

Morning Oatmeal 
(or whenever my day allows time for eating with utensils)

  1. Boil the kettle.
  2. Take kids' leftover bowl with some extra soymilk and cold cereal sloshing in the bottom.
  3. Add random crumbs from yesterday's bags of kids' car snacks
  4. Add organic wholegrain oats
  5. OK, ran out of wholegrain oats. Add some instant oatmeal and some of that cornmeal I bought months ago when I was going to start making fresh cornbread.
  6. Add some raisins, or shred some dates with bare hands, or just decide the soymilk will be sweet enough.
  7. Cinnamon? Ginger? Nice if you have a few extra seconds.
  8. Pour boiled water over the ingredients in the bowl.
  • Cooking time - 1 shower, 5 answered emails and 1 shopping list (don't forget organic wholegrain oats!) 
  • If in a super hurry, just add more soymilk to cool and eat right away as limp muesli
Bon appetit! Remember while eating that these are the best years of your life...
