Please Sir, can I have some more?

The good people at Brookfarm recently sent me a free sample of their new PORRIJ

The sample had been lying on the kitchen counter for a while and my eldest son asked me several times over the past week "are you ever going to eat that mum?" Well to be honest, I was a bit sceptical. Could Brookfarm pull it off? I mean could they deliver what we expect from the every day garden variety -especially when I eyeballed the ingredients and saw cinnamon and thought to myself..  oh dear, the cinnamon is going to be overkill..  yeah right.. like I'm an expert.. pfffft

So I summoned all of my courage and went in head on - adding 1/3 cup of milk and microwaving for 90 seconds.  I added a little more milk, half a banana and drizzled with honey and..

I can confidently say.. WELL DONE Brookfarm, I think you've nailed it.  It really was quite delicious and you've managed to successfully duplicate the porridge texture with organic brown rice, millet and quinoa.  What a triumph.

If you have been missing that steaming bowl of porridge of the oaty variety, despair no more! 

MOOOOORE??  Why not! Get into it.
