Quite often at home we make porridge, especially in the winter time. We use different grains; quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, oats... One of our favourites is millet. Millet is easily digestible and has many health benefits, we like to make salty and sweet porridges with it, pies, crumbles, bread... For the easy plum compote, you can use any seasonal fruit instead: pears, apples, berries, figs... 

To make the plum compote: Clean, cut in halves and remove the pit of the plums. Place the plums in a saucepan adding the coconut syrup, juice and vanilla. Cook in medium-low heat for about 8-10 minutes until the fruit start to tender. Remove and let it cool down.

To make the millet porridge: Add the millet, nut milk, spices and salt into a saucepan. Bring to simmer on a medium to low heat, stirring constantly until the liquid is almost gone.

Crush some nuts by using a fork, cut the figs. Serve the porridge in small bowls, adding some nut milk, a couple of spoons of plum compote, crushed nuts, figs, coconut flakes...
