Tahini Porridge With A Sesame Brûlée Topping

Porridge in the summer months. A contentious subject, but something we'd like to get you excited about when going to bed. This recipe takes porridge to a whole new level. It feels like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. Not complaining about this. 

The brûlée topping is sweet and nutty and when you break through, you reach a creamy tahini porridge that’s full of goodness and guaranteed to keep that mid-morning hollow stomach feeling  at bay. 

It works great as a sharing breakfast. Try doubling up the ingredients and serving with some Greek yoghurt, pistachios and fresh fruit, if that floats your boat. 

Serves 1


You will need a small oven proof dish/bowl


  • 50g oats
  • 350ml milk of your choice
  • 1tsp tahini
  • 1-2 tsp honey
  • Handful of sesame seeds


Top tip: Soak your oats in the milk for at least 20 minutes, preferably overnight. This gives the porridge a much better texture and makes the oats easier to digest.

  • Preheat your grill onto a medium setting.
  • Gently warm the soaked oats and tahini in a saucepan stirring over a medium heat until they are just warmed (not piping hot). Add a dash of milk if the mixture looks a bit thick, you want this to be a little runny before you put it under the grill.
  • Tip the oat mixture into your oven proof dish, squeeze over the honey, sprinkle over the sesame seeds until the oats are fully covered.
  • Place the dish under the grill until the topping is golden brown, make sure to keep an eye on it.
  • Remove, let is stand for a minute or 2 and enjoy!
