Savoury Porridge Breakfast Bowl

A savoury porridge? With oats AND eggs? Yep. It's that good you'll be asking yourself why you hadn't thought of it before. The truth is, oats aren’t naturally sweet, we just make them that way by putting sweet stuff on them.

So now's time to explore new ideas and taste new foods. And this savoury porridge recipe makes that perfect salty, satisfying breakfast – not to mention balanced and healthy. With a sumptuous soft-boiled egg on top, sliced avocado and drizzled with tahini, this is a decadent porridge re-imagined for adults.
