I saw a recipe for orange porridge so thought i would experiment with pomegranites as they are great for something or other as well as the oats, this is milk free, so no guilt, although i did cheat and add yoghurt to mine
- bring water and juice to boil.
- add oats.
- stir constantly for about 3 minutes or until creamy.
- put in serving bowl and stir in pomegranate seeds.
I've made oatmeal with oranges, raisins, apples and all kinds of other fruit before, but had never thought to use pomegranate (which is staggering, since I love them). This was a tasty dish, and plenty sweet on its own, so I added no sugar. My pomegranate was HUGE, way too much for the amount of oatmeal, but that's ok -- more for later! :) My only complaint is this came out a rather unattractive brown-pink, maybe because the only pomegranate juice I was able to find was blended with cherry juice. No matter. It was a lovely and different way to use one of my favorite fruits!
This was my first taste of pomegranate! And it looked so festive, I loved it :-) I soaked the oats overnight to make it extra creamy, and used apple juice. Although I didn't really like the seeds, they were a lot easier to eat in this porridge! The seeds make it pretty but for taste I may just use the juice next time. I totally forgot 'cause these simple ingredients were so good on their own, but I bet it would be lovely with yogurt or sliced banana. Thanks for an easy intro to the pomegranate! Update: I've enjoyed this a few more times and the taste of the seeds doesn't bother me a bit anymore! I think I'll have to splurge and buy pomegranates more often :-)
