Jemma O'Hanlon

Ingredients:

Serves 2

Porridge

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  •  ½ vanilla bean (optional)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp Australian pistachios
  • 2 tbsp Australian macadamias
  • 1 tbsp Australian sultanas
  • 2 Australian prunes
  • 1 Australian beurre bosc pear

To serve

  • Dollop yoghurt
  • Small handful fresh Australian blueberries
  • Remaining Australian pistachios and macadamias
  •  ¼ Australian nashi pear

Method:

  1. Slice pear, removing core (keep a couple of slices separate for serving).
  2. Chop nuts roughly. Set some aside for serving. Slice prunes into quarters.
  3. In a medium to large saucepan, place all of the porridge ingredients and sliced pear.
  4. Bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer, stirring regularly until the porridge thickens. Add more milk if you prefer a thinner porridge.
  5. Remove vanilla bean prior to serving. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt, a fan of nashi pear
    slices, and the remaining macadamias, pistachios and fresh blueberries scattered over the top.

Tip: For something different, try a pear and chocolate porridge by substituting the turmeric, cinnamon and ginger with 1 tbsp cacao powder. The kids will love it!
