Roasted Plum and Fennel Porridge anyone?

Porridge is a perfect breakfast to start the day for those chilly mornings in Autumn/Winter.

(This recipe contains nuts).

How To Make Roasted Plum And Fennel Porridge:


  • 40g Quaker Oats
  • 300ml semi-skimmed milk

Roasted Plums (serve 8):

  • 4 red plums, cut into eighths
  • 35g tbsp light brown sugar
  • 15g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp roughly chopped pistachios

How To Make:

  1. Preheat an oven to 180C.
  2. To roast the plums place the sliced plums into a small roasting dish and sprinkle over the sugar and the butter.
  3. In a mortar and pestle lightly grind the fennel seeds. They don’t have to be a powder, just broken open to release the flavor.
  4. Sprinkle the seeds over the plums.
  5. Place the roasting dish into the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes, turning the fruit occasionally until soft and tender but still holding their shape.
  6. Put the Quaker Gluten Free oats into a saucepan, pour in the semi-skimmed milk.
  7. Bring it to the boil and simmer for 3-4 minutes, by stirring it continuously.
  8. Once the porridge is ready pour a portion into a bowl and top with 4 slices of plum and a little of the syrup from the pan.
  9. Sprinkle over the pistachios and serve.

    This sounds so interesting! I love fennel but never thought to pair with plums or porridge!

    Need to give this recipe a try. I like porridge for breakfast but plain gets a little boring.
