Berry Summer Porridge

Traditionally, porridge is made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped starchy plants – typically rolled oats.

Hot, steaming porridge is my go-to breakfast in winter.  It’s surprisingly comforting and there are so many different ways to make it. Like in the slow cooker for example.

However, in summer, I don’t want something hot to eat for breakfast.

A few years ago I stumbled across Carrie Brown’s Strawberry Seed Porridge.

This recipe is a take of that, with a few modifications.
