I wasn't sure if it would be well-received since some people are weird about food texture... So I tested it out on myself. I'm a bit biased though, I thought it rocked. But I love figs...
6 ripe, well sized figs, stems removed and chopped roughly
2 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp allspice
pinch of salt
1/4 c bulgur
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Sliced almonds, optional, to top (about 1/2-1 TBS)
1. Cook chopped figs in a small pot with the brown sugar over medium-low heat.
Approximately 7 minutes until the juices start to seep out and it gets gooey.
2. Add everything else except the almonds. Cook about 5 minutes, until the bulgur has absorbed the milk and you should be stirring relatively frequently towards the end.
3. Remove from heat and let it sit 1 minute. Dump in a bowl and top with almonds.
Quick and tasty!
You could probably sub any breakfast grain that you want... I just love bulgur. I bet millet would be great and there's no doubt it would be good with regular old fashioned oats too. MMmmm... Yum....
