Spiced Stewed Plums serves 2-4

Add whatever toppings you like. I always eat this with fat free Greek yogurt and sprinkled with seeds of my choice and bran for extra fibre.

This can be made in 15 mins for a quick and healthy breakfast or snack.


4 red plums (don't worry if they're not ripe), halved but not stoned

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp coriander seeds

1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste 

2 tsp agave syrup

100 ml water

Seeds of your choice- I like pumpkin & hemp

Fibre flakes if you like


  • Add plums, spices and water to a small saucepan and bring to the boil.

  • Keep on a rolling boil for around 15 mins.

  • Check the plums every 5 mins or so and give them a careful stir. If the water is beginning to boil away, simply add a splash more.

  • After 15 mins the plums should be soft but still retain a little bite. If you like them softer, then stew them for a little longer.

  • Once ready, remove the stones and pile over some good yogurt and top with seeds for crunch.
