Yoghurt, plums and nutty crunch

Did you know that fruit and veg that grows naturally on our trees, in our gardens and in hedgerows (or if it’s organic and grown outdoors) has lots more phytonutrients than commercially grown produce? Yes, it does. That’s because the plants have to develop strong natural protections against pests, weather and other environmental damage, and that’s what phytochemicals are for – natural plant protectors. Then we eat the phytos and they impart their power to our bodies.

Plums are also rich in beta carotenes which are fab for eye health, skin health, brain health and immunity.

Such a delicious Greek yoghurt and plums recipe.

Ingredients

You will preferably use an air fryer, but a frying pan will suffice if not.

  • 3-4 large ripe plums, halved and stoned
  • 4 tablespoons of oats
  • 20g chopped walnuts
  • 150-170g full fat Greek yoghurt
  • drizzle of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed seeds

Instructions

Place the halved and stoned plums into the air fryer and cook for 4 mins at 185º. Otherwise just cook them over a high heat in a frying pan with a splash of water, until slightly soft.

Mean time, place the oats and nuts in a blender and whizz for 15-20 secs in bursts, until the nuts are knubbly. Now toast the mixture in a hot dry frying pan, stirring all the time until they start to change colour. Stay with them so that they don’t suddenly catch and burn.

Spoon the Greek yoghurt into a nice bowl then place the cooked plums to one side and the oaty nutty knubble to the other. Drizzle the fruit with honey and sprinkle on the seeds.
