Autumn Persimmon Porridge

Have you tried a persimmon fruit yet?! For ages I called them permission fruit :) genuinely not realising my mistake!! Persimmon is a Latin word - it means “food of the gods.” They've become a bit of an autumn thing in UK supermarkets these past few years and are relatively inexpensive.

55% of our daily recommended dose of Vitamin A can be found in a persimmon. That's a whole heap of skin boosting benefits. They're a deliciously sweet, caramel flavour and even sweeter warmed gently in a pan with coconut oil and a drop of maple syrup.

INGREDIENTS (2 bowls)

100g porridge oats

500ml coconut milk (or almond) 200ml water

1 persimmon fruit sliced

1 peach sliced

Handful of pecans

Sprinkling of ground all spice

1 tsp maple syrup

2 tsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt

HERE'S HOW

Add the oats to a pan, stir in the milk and water and gently warm. Add a pinch of salt and drop of maple syrup. Warm for about 5 mins on a low heat

Meanwhile warm the coconut oil in a pan, add slices of persimmon and peach, a teaspoon of maple syrup and sprinkle of ground all spice. Warm and allow to bubble for a minute, turning the fruit over to brown evenly. Add the pecans and turn off the heat

Serve in a bowl, sprinkled with flaked almonds and a little more ground all spice

  • hey, good day. my self from Malaysia. just one Q regards to the above recipe. Generally, oats is good for health but in our case (people with psoriasis) it wouldn’t be the case because of the gluten it has. so many info from multiple sites ask us to avoid gluten perhaps gluten free food options, so in this case, how’s a meal with oats? just like to clarify further. Thank You.
