Spiced Porridge with Blackberries, Fig, Pecan & Almond Milk

Ingredients:

  • 40g rolled oats
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 250ml almond milk/any milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, agave, unrefined coconut sugar or manuka honey

Method:

  • Put the oats in a small saucepan and dry-toast on a low heat until they’re slightly golden and smell like baking biscuits. Mix 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg, allspice and ginger with the oats whilst dry-toasting (this really enhances the flavour).
  • Add the salt, milk, vanilla and sweetener of choice, turn the heat to medium-high and let the porridge come to a rolling boil.
  • Once it has come to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and start stirring. Some people prefer to stir it every once in a while but I like to stir pretty regularly – it seems to make for a creamier end result.
  • Pour the porridge into a bowl to cool for a couple of minutes whilst you prepare your toppings.
  • After cooking top with a fresh fig, blackberries, a sprinkling of pecans and a splash of cold almond milk.
