    I bought some psyllium husks in a box ( I'm having trouble 'going') & saw that some people make a 'porridge' out of it. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to do it?
    Thanks in advance,

    Got this from russian Doll :

    [FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Take 300ml of VERY hot water (but not boiling).
    >Add a CD pack (toffee & walnut and vanilla both work really well)
    >Mix it up with a blender as per usual.
    >Pour into a bowl and then sprinkle about 2 dessertspoons of PH on top.
    >Stir briskly with either a fork or a balloon whisk.
    >At first, it'll go lumpy (and you'll think 'Oh crap!!') but keep stirring / whisking until it starts to go smooth and thicken.
    >I like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top of mine to give it a really 'wintery' taste!

    And that's all there is to it!

    Don't expect 'Scott Porrige Oats' - the consistancy will be more like semolina but very acceptable when you've got nothing else!

    It's quite nice - careful with the PH though - if you add too much it goes a bit stringly, like glue! Also thickens a bit as you eat it so don't be tempted to add more and eat immediately.
