Sorghum Porridge with Peanut Butter and Caramelised Bananas



Cooks in:        Serves:4

  • 1 cup sorghum

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 cups milk (and a little more to add along the way if necessary)

  • 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt

To serve
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup (or honey or coconut sugar)
  • 2 bananas, halved lengthways
  • 1 Tbsp Peanut Butter

What to do

1. In a pot, add the nutty sorghum. Then add the water, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt, and simmer gently, partially covered, for 10–15 minutes. Add extra water or milk as you go, depending on the desired consistency.

2. Meanwhile, prepare your caramelized bananas by frying them in the butter and honey in a pan over medium heat until golden.

3. Divide the porridge between warmed bowls, top with banana, a dollop of peanut butter and a scattering of crumbled granola bars if you like.
