Serves 2 people


  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ vanilla bean (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp pistachios, roughly chopped (plus additional for serving)
  • 2 tbsp macadamias, roughly chopped (plus additional for serving)
  • 1 tbsp sultanas
  • 2 prunes, sliced
  • 1 beurre bosc pear, core removed and sliced
  • Dollop yoghurt
  • Small handful of fresh blueberries


  1. Place all porridge ingredients in a medium to large saucepan.
  2. Bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer, stirring regularly until the porridge thickens. Add more milk if you prefer a thinner porridge.
  3. Remove vanilla bean prior to serving. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt, a scatter of fresh blueberries, plus some additional chopped macadamias and pistachios.


For something different, try a pear and chocolate porridge by substituting the turmeric, cinnamon and ginger with 1 tbsp cacao powder. The kids will love it!
