Switching up the breakfast classics with Savoury Porridge

Savoury porridge I hear you ask, trust me don’t knock it until you have tried it. I am a big fan of eggs and greens for breakfast but when the weather is colder and the mornings are icey sometimes there is nothing that beats a bowl of warming porridge. So why not combine the two? Breakfasting just got interesting.


How to make the perfect savoury porridge


  • Porridge oats - I use a cupful of large oats
  • Water or almond milk
  • One British Lion egg
  • Kale - a big handful
  • Coconut oil
  • Chilli flakes - to your taste
  • Half an avocado
  • Optional - finely chopped onion, garlic to taste, sea salt



  1. Porridge is a personal preference, some people like it with water, some with milk, other people swear by making it on a hob and for others its a microwave job. How you want to make it is up to you as we all have our porridge preferences. I personally make it with unsweetened almond milk and stir it on the hob until it is thick and creamy.
  2. As the porridge is cooking, heat a pan with coconut oil, put the kale in and let it wilt down.
  3. Optional - stir fry some finely chopped onion and garlic and add this in for extra flavour into the porridge once nearly cooked.
  4. Once the porridge is creamy and the kale is pretty much cooked, fry up an egg with coconut oil - sunny side up :)
  5. Then its the important part, the plating up! Porridge first with a side of kale and avocado and then the egg on top.
  6. Final touches are a sprinkling of chilli flakes and sea salt.

Voila! Savoury porridge with a good side of greens and egg for the perfectly balanced breakfast of carbs, protein and good fats, which tastes great as well.
