Method

  • Start the night before by bringing dried cherries, apricots, ginger shreds, and 12.35 fl. oz. of water to a boil in a small pan. Cover with a lid and let the fruit mixture simmer for 12 minutes. After that, add the tea bags and let them infuse for 3 minutes. Once done, remove the tea bags and squeeze the excess liquid into the pan.

  • In another pan, combine the rinsed amaranth with 11.45 fl. oz. of water, then set it aside.

  • The next day, bring the amaranth mixture to a boil, then lower the heat, cover with a lid and cook for 12-14 minutes. Add the chia seeds, half of the yoghurt and mix well.

  • Divide the mixture into the bowls and top with the remaining yoghurt. Add sliced apples and pomegranate seeds to the compote and spoon it over the porridge. Serve and enjoy!

Suggestion

  • To make the porridge more filling, you can add a scoop of protein powder or a handful of nuts or seeds to the mixture while it's cooking.

  • Soak the amaranth in water overnight or for at least a few hours before cooking. This helps to soften the grains and make them easier to cook.

Bon Appetit!
