Pumpkin Pie Spiced Porridge
Pumpkin Pie Spice
¼ cup porridge oats
¼ cup pumpkin puree (see recipe)
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
¾ - 1 cup water
1 tbsp of dried fruit and chopped nuts (optional)
How to Cook
To make puree:
1. Peel, deseed and cut pumpkin into medium sized chunks. Steam for 15 minutes or until soft. Drain water from pot, then leave pumpkin in the same pot to dry and cool off slightly.
2. Blend the pumpkin pieces in a food processor until it reaches a puree consistency. Mash the pumpkin pieces well if you do not have a food processor.
(Store leftovers for future use. Refrigerated leftover pumpkin puree will last about a week).
1. In a small saucepan over low heat, bring water to a boil. Add in porridge oats and stir for 2-3 minutes, or according to the instructions on the package.
2. Add in pumpkin puree, sweetener and spice and stir to combine, allowing to cook for a further 1-2 minutes.
Transfer into a small bowl to serve, sprinkled with dried fruit and chopped nuts, or toppings of your choice. Enjoy warm.
