  • 1 cup chopped Black Plum from Chile 1 plum = 1 cup
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger optional
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar Could add 3 tbsp total if you like it sweeter
  • 1 3/4 cup farro I used PC Italian Farro (entire 225 g box)
  • 2 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk Swop with milk of choice. Add 1tsp vanilla extract if your milk is not vanilla flavoured

    Cut fruit for Fruity Farro Breakfast
  • Add farro and stir into fruit mixture.
  • Add milk and bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a simmer. The mixture will cook down over 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom.
    The meal is ready to serve when the liquid has been absorbed and the farro is tender but not mushy.


Optional: Serve topped with a dollop of yogurt.
This would store well in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. I would eat them cold, or warm in a pan with a little extra milk or water. Alternatively, I’m sure you could warm them in a microwave (though I don’t have one).
