Caramalised apples and porridge for breakfast.
I love porridge and I know that quick oats aren’t as good for us as the plain old rolled oats so before I got my Thermomix I didn’t really eat them much. They take so long too cook the conventional way. Having to stand over the saucepan for 10 minutes while you stir, stir stir, sheesh who’s got time for that these days.
For those of you that don’t know, if you have milk and oats in a pot and cook it over a low flame and don’t keep stirring your mix you will have a burnt bottom. No, the pan bottom silly.
Well of course this is another dish I can now take complete pleasure from, in the cooking and the eating, due to my best friend in the kitchen Thermomix.
|The ingredients that make it special
I was reading through one of my Delicious magazines the other day and came across a really good idea. My hubby says “I don’t do porridge” but you know, he likes all the grains and earthy types of foods that you would get from the health food shop, so I thought “there has to be a way that I can switch this up so he will enjoy it with me”. So here it is you have to try it, he loves it now.
First for the Brown sugar apples
2 red apples cored and cut into thin wedges
2 Tablespoons of brown sugar
2 Tablespoons of honey or Maple syrup
|Caramelised apples yum
Place everything in your TM bowl and cook at 100c for 12 minutes.
remove from the bowl (without cleaning, I like that part) and add
80 grams of rolled oats
200 grams of a mixture of water and milk. How much of each is totally up to you as long as it adds up to 200g.
Set your TM to 100c for 8 mins on reverse slow speed.
YUM what about cinnamon, cardamom or change the fruit to pears or mandarin. oh I could go on but I wont cause I just know you want to get to it and try this one.
