1 earl grey teabag
2 ripe pears – peeled, halved, cored
4 pitted prunes
2 tablespoons honey
16 sticks of rhubarb
1 ¼ cup cooked red, white & black quinoa
Small handful toasted slivered almonds
160 ml Coyo (or any other coconut yoghurt brand) sprinkled with a pinch of bee pollen *optional
Peel and core the pears, and chop each pear in half.
In a pot over low heat, gently simmer the pears, tea bag, water, prunes and honey for 10-15 mins, or until pears are soft. Separate liquid from solids. Reserve.
Chop the rhubarb into 7cm pieces. Steam in a hot pot with a lid on for 2 minutes or until just cooked.
Toss the almonds with the quinoa.
To serve, scoop 90g of quinoa mix into a bowl. Top with 1 pear half, 1 prune & 4 rhubarb fingers. Pour over 50 ml of the brewing liquid. Warm for 1 – 2 minutes if desired and serve with a dollop of coyo and a pinch of bee pollen
