It's currently Autumn (or auf Deutsch, Herbst) here in Germany and the weather is starting to get a bit chilly.... Not that I'm complaining because it also means it's... Porridge Season!
From the many porridge recipes on my blog including Cacao + Strawberry, Matcha Almond with Honey + Sea salt , Banana + Raspberry Tumeric I'm sure you can tell that I'm a lover.
My Ginger Porridge with Stewed Plums is another delicious variation that I'm sure all you ginger fans will love. The creamy porridge base is not overly sweet, but is balanced well with the sweet caramelised plums. I also like to top it with almond butter because lets face it who doesn't love a good drizzle of nut butter and bee pollen for added sweetness.
80g rolled oats
200ml planted based milk
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 heaped tsp ground ginger
pinch of salt
2 plums, stone removed and sliced
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tsp bee pollen (optional)
Begin by placing sliced plums in a fry pan with a dash of water. On low to medium heat allow cook away until plums begin to soften and caramelise.
In a small saucepan add oats, milk, water, sugar, ginger and salt. On a medium heat allow to cook until thick and creamy.
Serve porridge in a bowl and top with stewed plums, a generous dollop of almond butter and bee pollen. Serves 1.
