Honey poached prunes

Fall arrived.
Temporarily I like the change. Mostly because the fruit and vegetable selection changed. After tons of nectarines, peaches and watermelon I love that there is Swiss fruit again. Prunes, apples, pears are in season now. The apples are finally super juicy again and there’s currently an overdose of prunes.
My husbands boss has a yard and harvested kilos of prunes, apples and pears, which we now get to savour.
I love poached fruit. Tart prunes are a perfect combination to sweet pears.
The following recipe is one of my all time favourites. You can basically add whatever spice you like (vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon). The raw overnight buckwheat porridge is a welcomed alternative to oatmeal porridge.

Overnight buckwheat porridge with honey poached prunes
(serving size 2-3)

- 3/4 cup buckwheat groats
- 1/4 cup flax seed
- 1/2 cup plant based milk (my avourite one: oat milk)
- 1 table spoon lemon juice
- water
- 1 pinch of salt

poached fruit:
- 6 prunes
- 2 pears
- 1 apple
- 1-2 table spoons water
- 1-2 table spoons honey

Add the liquid to the oats and flax seed. Stir very well to combine. Add the lemon juice and salt. The grains need to be covered completely, add as much water as needed.
Let sit in the fridge for a while (optimally over night).

Wash and chop the fruit. Add the water and bring to a boil. Now let it simmer on lower heat for around 10-15 minutes. Add the honey right at the end. You can serve the poached fruit warm or cool (which I love when it’s still warm outside).

Round up the porridge with sliced fruit, nuts, berries, yogurt or more nut milk on top.
