Porridge

Porridge was, as the Fifth Doctor explained to Nyssa, "a dish made from oatmeal or another cereal, cooked in water to a thick consistency". He added that it was "very nourishing", and noted that while some liked to have sugar with it, he preferred a dash of salt. (PROSE: Empire of Death) It had the same energy signature as Kryon radiation, much to the Eleventh Doctor's annoyance. (COMIC: Ripper's Curse)
