    My Private Note



    bowl of ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/3 cup oat bran
    • 2/3 cup cold unsweetened orange juice (I use Tropicana)


    1. 1
      Combine oat bran and orange juice in a medium sized microwave-safe bowl.
    2. 2
      Microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes; watch constantly and stop cooking when mixture threatens to bubble over the sides of the bowl.
    3. 3
      Stir occasionally.
    4. 4
      After 2 minutes, check to see if all the orange juice has been absorbed.
    5. 5
      If not, microwave for another 30 seconds to a minute.
    6. 6
      Stir, and, if desired, top with fresh orange slices (or any other"compatible" fruit) for a yummy, citrusy breakfast!
    7. 7
      Note: Microwave times will vary so adjust cook time accordingly; this recipe simply provides a rough guideline.

      This was a tasty, intensely orange porridge. A great way to start my day! I microwaved for 2 minutes 45 seconds. Thanks for the idea -- now I will have to try this with other kinds of juice! UPDATE: I have made this more than once, also trying apple juice instead of orange juice. I find that half water and half juice is what I like best -- not overly intense, but still with a nice fruity flavour.

      A poetic name this wonderful porridge does have! I started off my day with this today and loved the citrusy flavour it had. I used fresh orange juice(of 2 oranges).I microwaved the oats and juice mixture on HIGH for a total of 3 minutes. I didn't have it with any fruits, I just enjoyed it hot by itself:)
