Savory Porridge with Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Spinach

Everybody knows porridge. I love it for breakfast with chocolate and peanut butter or with blueberries. Especially in winter I like its warmth.

Have you ever tried savory porridge? As I walked around in a store a couple of days ago I spotted a box for savory porridge, I made a face and didn’t give it much thought. This was probably because I don’t buy mush mixes or other food mixes (way too expensive and unnecessary ingredients…) and also I couldn’t imagine this slimy texture in savory.

Two days later it hit me again and I was curious. So I got into my kitchen and made a savory porridge. Onions and veggie stock instead of milk and cinnamon. And instead of fruit I used tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach. The result was so yummy, that I wrote down the recipe for you.

If you like the combination of tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach also try this pasta!

Have fun trying a savory porridge!

    Liebe Rina,
    schon immer koche ich Porridge ausschließlich herzhaft, weil ich das süße „Schlabberzeugs“ einfach nicht mag und auch diese Variante kommt bei mir häufiger vor. Aber mit Hefeflocken abzuschmecken ist mir neu und werde ich direkt morgen ausprobieren. Danke für den Tipp.
    Viele Grüße,

      Liebe Irina,
      ich mag die herzhafte Variante mittlerweile auch viel lieber!
      Die Hefeflocken geben ein tolles Aroma und eine gewisse Cremigkeit.
      Lass es dir schmecken!
      Liebe Grüße
