  1. In a large pot combine the red lentils, oats, milk, cinnamon and salt. Cook on low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. If porridge is becoming too dry, add more milk, ¼ cup at a time. Continue cooking until oats and lentils are soft and porridge is thick.
  3. Pour porridge into 4 bowls. Top each with 1 tablespoon peanut butter.

Recipe Tips

Top with your favorite fruit or berries, or add 1/4 cup dried fruit at the same time as the oats!

Adding 1 teaspoon of honey or maple syrup to each bowl before serving will bring out the sweetness of the lentils.
