Vanilla Green Fig Spelt Porridge

Vanilla Green Fig Spelt Porridge

This creamy and nutty Vanilla Green Fig Spelt Porridge is a simple, deliciously warming breakfast the entire family will enjoy. Pearled spelt has a delicious nutty taste and a lovely chewy texture. Pearled spelt has been polished to remove the bran resulting in a creamy-colored grain. It cooks faster than whole spelt and also has a softer, less chewy texture than the hulled variety. When cooked, the grains plump up to almost twice their size. Pearled spelt is a great alternative to rice for ‘soft’ dishes like porridge, risotto and soups. It’s rich in fibre, protein and minerals like iron and manganese.


  • 1/2 cup of pearled spelt, rinsed well and left to drain
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small can (270 ml) coconut milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla powder or pure vanilla extract

To serve:

  • 4 small green figs, quartered
  • 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup (optional)


  • Gently heat oil in a small sauce pan. Add the washed and drained pearled spelt and stir until the grains are coated with the oil and give of a nutty aroma.
  • Add the coconut milk, raisins and water and bring up to a boil. When the spelt has reached a boil, reduce heat to a low simmer, cover, and continue to cook for about 20 minutes or until the pearled has a soft and chewy texture.
  • Just before serving add the vanilla powder. Serve with fresh green figs and maple syrup to taste.
