 Miso Caramel Pear Porridge

Miso caramel pear porridge makes one of my favorite desert flavors into a breakfast worthy indulgence. Tender caramelized pear, a quick honey-miso-butter sauce and toasted seeds for crunch. Soak the oats the night before for best results, and make sure to use ripe pears.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 3/4 cup almond milk (or other milk, I often use a mix of almond & coconut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt
  • toasted pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds to serve
  • Greek yogurt to serve
Pears
  • 2 ripe pears, halved and cored (I use beurre bosc)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon white miso paste (adjust to taste)
Instructions
  1. Soak the oats the night before - combine the oats, chia seeds, milk, vanilla and salt in a bowl and refrigerate overnight. If you forget this step, even 30 minutes of soaking is worthwhile.
  2. Half and core the pears. Heat up a fry pan big enough to fit all the pears, cut side down.
  3. Melt the butter, honey and miso in the frypan and add the pears. On a low-medium heat, cook for about 10 minutes (depends on pear ripeness) until almost tender. Be careful not to burn the pears - low slow heat is good. I find putting a lid on the pan speeds this step up. When the pears are fork tender, if they are not caramelized underneath enough turn the heat up a bit for a few minutes.
  4. To cook the porridge, transfer the soaked oats and milk to a saucepan. Cook on a medium heat for 5 or so minutes until desired thickness reached. If it gets too dry for you, add a bit of water or more milk.
  5. Meanwhile, toast the seeds in a dry pan.
  6. Serve the porridge in bowls topped with caramelized pear, toasted seeds and Greek yogurt.

stylish picks for your pooch...



Meet Molly...



Molly is my third child. And just like my other children, she has managed to accumulate a lot of stuff. I don't mind that she has her favorite things strewn throughout the house. However, if they are going to be there, I would rather they not offend my eyes. So I have been on the hunt for stylish pet products that blend seamlessly into our shared space. Luckily, there are some great products out there to choose from. Here are a few of my latest finds...

coastal coffee table books...

 

I love a good coffee table book! Not only are they filled with design ideas, but they are also great to use as d├ęcor themselves. You can use them in any space to add color, elevate other items, and showcase your interests. 


Since I have been spending more time at home lately, I’ve had the opportunity to flip through some of my favorite coastal design books and wanted to share some of my favorites with you. I hope that you find them as beautiful and inspirational as I do! 


Do you have any favorites? I am always open to recommendations. You can never have too many books…
