The porridge recipe serves one. The figgy goodness is enough for about 3-4 portions.

Ingredients:

1 large handful of oats

Hearty splash of milk

100g dried figs

1 large tablespoon of good quality, thick yoghurt*

1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon

Drizzle of runny honey (optional)

*I’m a self confessed yoghurt snob. I hate how much added sugar and rubbish is added to some yoghurts but as a vegetarian find that the right yoghurts are an excellent source of protein. I tend to go for Fage total , Natural Skyr or Liberte Natural yoghurt all of which have around 10g of protein per 100g but only around 3-4g of sugar per 100g.

Method:

Roughly chop your figs and place them with about 150 ml of water in a pan.

Cook on a medium heat for about 10 mins, stirring every so often.

When the water reduces take off the heat and leave to cool for a few mins while you make your porridge.

Add oats, water (1.5-2 x the amount of your oats), 1 tsp of cinnamon and the milk to a bowl and microwave for 2.5 – 3 mins. Half way through cooking give it a stir and top up with liquid if required.

Pop the fix mixture into a food processor and blend to make a thick fig puree.

Add a spoonful of fix mixture to your porridge along with your yoghurt. Drizzle over the honey before dusting the additional 1/2 tsp of cinnamon over the yoghurt and figs.
