    Not without potentially losing some of the vitamins and nutrients :(

    Sorry couldn't be better news - I think someone tried it, but it either didn't work very well, or were told that cooking it in a method other than that on the packet meant loss of nutrients :(

    Hi

    You can put the porridge in a bowl then put the bowl in a pan of hot water as long as you are not putting direct heat onto the porridge it will be okay.

    Ahhhh so is the porridge ready made? I never asked my CDC as I just had it in my head it would be a sachet that I had to mix with water and that put me off trying it --- might give it a go next week.

    It is a sachet you mix with water and pop into the microwave. I love it. Especially in this weather. It's the only thing am having.

    Thanks Sylvie --- I can never make real porridge without it being lumpy as anything, will still give this a go though.

    Funny thing with CD porridge is I make mine lumpy so it feels more like real food. It's just a psychological thing.
