Craving this breakfast, after waking up with a bit of a sore head,from too many glasses of vino, most people crave fry's, I crave comforting warm things like this winter porridge I made for our yoga retreat last weekend. So simple but feels like a hug on the inside when eaten.
Coconut porridge, with winter stewed fruit and a yogurt mascarpone
Firstly I make up a big batch of the stewed fruit, this takes awhile but keeps for ages.
In a large pot with some coconut oil I added 6 peeled and chopped red apples, 1 large or 2 2 small bags of unsweetened dried cranberries, 1 bag of golden raisins, the juice of 3 oranges, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon dried ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1 vanilla pod or 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. The rind of 2 oranges. And optional either 2 glasses of red wine or one glass of whiskey. .
Add all this to a pot and mix well, bring to the boil and then reduce to simmer for about 1-2 hours. Adding more orange juice or water if needed just a small bit to stop it burning at the bottom, you don't want it to be a liquidy sauce, you want it to be just lots of plump delicious fruit.
Once done let cool and store in an air tight container. Warming up your serving before adding to your porridge. .
For the porridge
I like to cook my porridge low and slow. Giving me a creamy consistency. And the night before I soak my oats.
So the night before I add 1 can of coconut milk, 1 can full of oats, and one can full of water, a pinch of cinnamon, a teaspoon of vanilla. Let it sit in the fridge over night.
Then in the morning in a sauce pan heat your porridge on a low heat while stirring until you get the creamy consistency desired. .
Mix yogurt and mascarpone adding seeds from vanilla pod or vanilla extract and assemble.
Warm porridge, warm winter fruits and a generous scoop of mascarpone yogurt. And enjoy
