1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 large carrot, grated (equal to approximately 1 cup grated carrot)
1 small apple, diced
1 tbsp currants
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon or mixed spice
1/2 cup non-dairy milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond)
1/2 - 1 cup water, to taste (less will give a thicker porridge)

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, covered, for approximately 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove the lid and cook on low heat for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until the porridge has thickened up.
