    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    175g jumbo oats
    2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
    1 tbsp sesame seeds
    1 tbsp sunflower seeds
    700ml unsweetened almond milk
    Large pinch ground cinnamon
    40g Waitrose Love Life Dried Cherries
    4 Waitrose Love Life Large Soft Apricots, quartered
    4 Waitrose Love Life Large Soft Smyrna Figs, quartered
    2 pitted dates, finely chopped
    1 Earl Grey tea bag
    Honey, to taste (optional)
     

    Method

    1. Place the oats, pumpkin, sesame and sunflower seeds and almond milk in a large bowl. Stir in the cinnamon. Place the dried fruits and tea bag in a separate bowl and pour in enough cold water to come about 2cm above the level of the fruits. Cover both bowls with clingfilm and set aside in a cool place to soak overnight.

    2. Next morning, tip the soaked oats into a pan and bring to the boil over a medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring regularly, until thick and creamy. If the porridge is too thick, add a little more almond milk or water.

    3. Drain the soaked fruits and discard the tea bag. Serve the hot porridge topped with the fruits.
