Porridge

We have milk available on meal plan 1, no milk on meal plan 2, it’s a vegan plan.

If you are following meal plan 1, you could either use the milk here, in your porridge, up to 380ml each time you make it. Or if you’d rather, keep the milk for your tea / coffee. There is a total of 3.4 litres (2 x 6 pints) in the plan

Raisins are used as they are a purple portion, the  hardest one to get. If you don’t have them, use any other dried fruit – sultanas, home dried foraged apples or plums for instance
