Dukan Diet: Oat Bran Porridge!!! So easy - so delicious!

I know this is not an exciting photo and it certainly does not give justice to the delicious dish it was!!! You see, I have been in the search for Oat Bran recipe ideas and have truly started to love this stuff! I was on twitter and @JosaYoung was talking about oat bran porridge. I had to know how to make this, particularly with the Scottish roots in my household.

She told me to get a lot of water to boil, add 2 tbs of Oat Bran and a little salt and cook until thickened. That was OK, but if you know me, you know I needed to change that! so here is my version that was so good even my kids asked me for more!

Ingredients (for one serving):

  • 1/2 cup of 2% milk (you can use skimmed too)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 2 tbsp Oat Bran
  • Pinch of salt
  • Stevia to taste (optional - I did not use it as I do not like sweet porridge)

Mix all the ingredients in a pan and boil for about 8 minutes.

 Turn the heat off and let it cool for about 2 minutes.

You are done!! You can also microwave it for about 3 minutes and rest for 2 minutes.

The water and salt version is VERY Scottish and austere - unusual now to eat it like this in England, but I am old fashioned. I also add yoghurt or fat free fromage frais for more protein.

@JosaYoung - I loved teh water version - it must be the little Scottish in my heart! I did the milk version to make it more indulgent - to satisfy the Venezuelan side! LOL!I need to try the yogurt in top. Some Greek yogurt may be nice!
