Sweet Blueberry Semolina Porridge

Its been raining a lot here in Brisbane and I really felt like a warm porridge. Something I have never used other then for pasta is semolina. I looked at a few different recipes that used semolina, water and milk, but I wasn’t sure how many people they served. So I just thought I would experiment and see what happens. It is very much like cooking polenta, but it comes out a lot thicker a lot faster. It was really delicious, especially with blue berry maple syrup! This is a quick easy breakfast that takes no earlier preparation and will warm you up and keep you satisfied for longer.

  1. That looks so delicious. I love porridge, but I’ve never used semolina before… I can imagine that it’d work so well! The weather is cooling down here in Perth too at the moment. I actually wore long sleeves three times this week, and cooked a few hot dinners without melting in the kitchen. I do love winter. Yay for porridge mornings!

    • Thanks Laura! We are having some days around 25 and some 32 its really strange, but its nice for diversity. I can’t wait for winter though. I thought I missed summer, but with all these mosquito I want to hide my legs and I prefer hearty warm meals. I also made a similar porridge with polenta, you can see in my index. Both are really yummy!
