For most of my life i didn’t really like oatmeal or porridge, or at least i didn’t think I would.
I’d tried Porridge once on holiday in London but the consistency was not for me, it looked like baby food.
But then I realized that I had probably never tried Porridge done properly, that is more consistent and with lots of fruit and toppings. When I got it, it was a breakthrough!
So, if you’re not an oatmeal lover, trust me, it’s worth giving it another try and experimenting with this recipe because you might change your mind like me.
Preparing Porridge with Instant Pot is very easy and takes very little time: just pour in oatmeal and water, press a button and you’re done.
So even on those mornings when you’re on the run you can enjoy this delicious breakfast because Instant Pot will do what you don’t have time to do.
And don’t forget you won’t have to clean the pan after it’s been on the stove, with zero effort you’ll have a fantastic hot cup of Porridge ready to garnish and brighten up your day.

Store Porridge in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Porridge in the fridge thickens even more.
Before using Instant Pot, make sure the lid is sealed properly. This is important because using Instant Pot without the lid tightly closed is dangerous and Porridge could burn and stick to the bottom.
For this recipe you’ll use from 2 1/2 to 3 cups of water depending on whether you want a thicker or thinner consistency. It depends on how thick/lean you like Porridge.
If you’re not sure, start with a smaller dose (2 1/2 cups) to get a thicker porridge because you always have time to add water. If you prefer, you can replace some of the water with milk.
These ingredients are dosed to prepare Porridge for 2 people. You can double the doses and still have 6 minutes of cooking time.
