Sourdough Starter Porridge

In the spirit of keeping it simple, here's another thing you can do with your extra sourdough starter.

Eat it!

(Well, more or less. Read on for the details.)

Recipe: Sourdough Starter Porridge

For one serving, mix 1/4 cup sourdough starter with 3/4 cup water in a thick-bottomed saucepan. Stir constantly over medium low heat until it thickens. Continue to stir and cook for a few more minutes. Add more hot water at the end if you'd like it a little thinner.

For sweet porridge, add any or all of the following:

- salt
- cream or milk
- butter or coconut oil
- crème fraîche or sour cream or yogurt
- fruit or dried fruit
- mineral-rich sweetener of choice (molasses, honey, maple syrup, dark sugar)
- dark beer
- whiskey or rum

If you'd rather take it in a savory direction, treat it as you would polenta, and add ground pepper and gravy or mushrooms or meat or whatever.
