Porridge w flax, blueberries and agave

We often cook a little late night "podge" instead of dessert. What with the oatmeal's cholesterol lowering properties, the flaxseed meal's high fibre and high omega 3s, and then the blueberries' antioxidants, it's super good for you and also delicious, particularly with a little kiss of agave syrup! Make sure just to serve the flaxseed meal on top, not to cook with it, as it loses it's omega 3 benefits when heated.

Serves 2-3

1 C traditional oats
2 C water
1/2 C almond milk
1 T brown sugar
pinch salt
To serve:
1 Punnet blueberries
2 T flaxseed meal

Combine all the ingredients in a microwave proof bowl and nuke for 10 - 15 minutes, adding a little more water if necessary. Alternatively you can cook it on the stove top. For a creamier consistency, soak the oats over -night before cooking them.
Serve with blueberries, flaxseed meal and a drizzle of agave.
