My grandfather was a farmer. Every morning he would get up at 5 a.m. to feed the animals and do all the farm duties. After he was done with his first shift, he would go into the kitchen to cook oatmeal or porridge. Around then I would wake up. I don’t know what his secret was but his oatmeal always had that perfect, thick and creamy consistency without losing the oaty texture. I was only a child but have such strong memories of him standing by the stove with his back facing the kitchen table and the sound of a wooden spoon stirring against the bottom of the pot.

I have become my grandpa. I don’t get up at 5 a.m. and we don’t have any cows and horses to feed, but porridge is also a morning ritual in our home. Everyone in our family loves eating it and I love to make it – stirring the pot, pretending that I’m him. We are sharing three variations of oatmeal in this chapter, but also some contemporary versions of porridge – a baked variety with carrots and raisins, a cold overnight porridge with buckwheat and blueberries, and a creamy, grain-free quinoa and millet porridge with turmeric and warm spices.

On days when we don’t cook porridge, we often choose a dish that involves eggs, like the Full Vegetarian Breakfast, a herby quinoa bowl or our Banana and Spinach Pancakes. A few other common breakfasts in our house that we have included are simple rye slices with a variety of toppings, Fruit-flavoured Yoghurt Pots, Banana and Cacao Granola and our epic Turmeric and Blueberry Breakfast Muffins.

There is a mix of sweet and savoury breakfasts so hopefully you’ll find a few new favourites of your own. David
