  • For the roasted squash
  • ½ large butternut squash, peeled and chopped into even-sized chunks
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  2. Meanwhile make the porridge: Heat a little water in a pan and add the leek, garlic, turmeric powder, seasoning and cayenne pepper. Cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Now add the oats and water and simmer for a further 5 minutes until most of the water has been absorbed and the porridge has a creamy texture.
