Healthy Sundays-Christmas Sunday Kashka
Updated: Aug 31, 2019
Ho ho ho! I have a Christmas treat for you! Again not so sure if this is a healthy one (it's one of my New Years resolutions to learn more about nutrition...), but surely this recipe will make your heart and soul sing. Gingerbread, mince pies... and everything nice!
Since I love mixing and matching not only design styles but culinary traditions as well, I just had to bring together a very traditional British dessert, a very special western treat and the quite conservative Eastern European cuisine and create this mad Christmas 'Kashka'.
For 2 portions of the Christmas 'kashka' you will need:
2 cups water
1 cup milk (cow or any nut milk, I like oats milk)
1 cup porridge oats
pinch of salt (or 2-to taste)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp gingerbread spice mix
1 tsp raisins/sultanas
2-3 almonds (or any nuts of your choice)
1/2 tsp butter
For topping you will need:
2 tsp Fresh Mince pie filling
1 tsp hazelnut crocant
How to prepare the Christmas 'kashka'?
In a saucepan add the water and milk on high temperature until they are just about to boil. (and once again! be very tentative-I managed to let mine run away and spill over half of the kitchen...and it wasn't pleasant) Change the temperature to low. In the mean time, wash and drain your oats. Add them to the boiling liquid, add a pinch of salt. Stir. Add the dry spices, and stir! Add the raisins/sultanas and nuts. Aaand stirrrr! Cook on low until the consistency is the consistency you like. *Add the butter at the end. And stir again.
Now it's time to plate the 'kashka', so let your imagination run wild! Add your toppings and enjoy! Keep in mind that this is a very rich and packed with calories kashka, but hey, it's the holidays, calories don't count! If you do however want to fill better for yourself, just substitute a piece of cake with this deliciousness. Trust me its worth it!
