Semolina with Chocolate Chips and Fig

Semolina with Chocolate Chips and Fig

Semolina is quickly becoming one of my favorite breakfasts. There are many reasons for this, but my favorite one is the simplicity of the dish. There is something beautiful in taking away the fuss and the overdressed meals, letting the quality ingredients do the talking. And boy oh boy, does this dish talk.

We also experience a simplicity in the process to make our semolina with chocolate chips and figs. It takes next to no time to make, leaving plenty of time to get everything else done in your morning routine. For me personally, this is perfect as I am often running around after my son. But it also works for anyone who wants a stress free breakfast. 

Imagine waking up to the sweet moist flavors of fresh fig, with a touch of chocolate goodness, sprinkled over the top of hot porridge like base. Sounds almost too good to be true. Almost.

To make this recipe, you will need 5 ingredients and 10 minutes. You will also need a small pot and access to stove top. 

We start the recipe off with almond milk, semolina, and cinnamon. This provides us with a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin E, potassium, calcium, and carbohydrates. We then top off this base with some fresh fig and vegan chocolate chips. These two ingredients not only provide us with some incredible tastes, but they also supply us with a source of magnesium, dietary fiber, vitamin K, and vitamin B6. Figs in particular are full of antioxidants which help to keep our body functioning at all levels.

Semolina with chocolate chips and fig is the perfect breakfast because it’s:

  • Super easy to make. 
  • Perfect for sharing with the family. 
  • A good source of protein – 7g per serve. 
  • Low in calories – only 262 per serve! 
  • Full of fresh quality ingredients.

I do not recommend storing semolina after it has been cooked. The semolina will lose the freshness and become inedible quickly if stored. However this is hardly a problem as it is very quick to make and following the instructions below, you will make just the right amount for your breakfast.  

And there you have it – our semolina with chocolate chips and figs. I hope you enjoy this recipe. See you next time!
