Cold autumn mornings, dew dripping leaves and hills wreathed in fog beg for warming, comforting porridge.
I am embracing the Nourishing Traditions method
and then making it my own with sweet morsels of fig from my small tree.
The seeds adding crunchy grittiness to the creamy oats
and just a wee drizzle of syrup.
My little tree isn't producing a "glut" yet but there are plenty to enjoy seasonally and share with the chooks too, they LOVE them.
For a packed work lunch snack, try yoghurt, figs and Brazil nuts, easily get you through the hunger zone before dinner.
Figs go with;
nuts, prosciutto, soft cheeses, honey, ham, salad greens
and more, but these are a few of my favourite things.
