Serves: 6

  • 1/2 cup (80g) sultanas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan then stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer then cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, sultanas, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.
  2. While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat then stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.
  3. Serve in bowls, each topped with about 2 tablespoons of the pecan mixture and a dollop of yoghurt.
