Paleo Goji Berry Semolina

Gone are the days of lifeless and boring semolina! Yummy!

As some of you may already know, the wonderful people at Nua Naturals sent me out some of their coconut flour, coconut sugar and some goji berries to review and get creative with. This is what I came up with.

If you haven’t heard about NUA Naturals before then I shall let you know a little about them! They are an Irish health food business at the cutting edge of the global trends of ‘Raw Food’, ‘Gluten Free’, and ‘Vegan’. They’re lovers, suppliers and artisan producers of organic health foods. 95% of their range is Organic (excluding their goji berries, MSM & bee pollen) and the only product of theirs that is not Vegan is the bee pollen. Such a fab company that could do with a bit more exposure in England I think!

Anyways, when you think of Semolina you probably think of having it for a pudding at school, right? And I bet it was lifeless and tasted horrendous? It did didn’t it?! Not this one though!

My kids love this grain-free and gluten-free semolina. It’s delicious, nutritious and looks kinda pretty too with those vibrant goji berries! It has the texture of a well cooked semolina and the flavour is as near as it’s gonna get so get rustling this up in the morning and beat this miserable, cold British weather! Oh and did I forget to mention that it was Vegan? Because it is! How awesome!!!

Serves: 3- 4 people

Preparation Time: 1 minute

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1/2 cup goji berries
1/4 cup milled chia seeds
3/4 cup almond flour
Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 1/4 cups water
1 tin coconut milk (400ml)
1 tbsp coconut oil

Method:

  1. Place all of your dry ingredients (except the goji berries) into a medium, heavy bottomed pan. Mix until evenly distributed.
  2. Add your water gradually, whisking until smooth.
  3. Now add your coconut milk and whisk until it is smooth.
  4.  Hold aside a small handful for of your goji berries for decoration. Add your remaining goji berries and mix in.
  5. Place on a low heat until it begins to simmer. Be sure to whisk frequently to ensure that you don’t end up with any lumps.
  6. Turn off the heat and add in your coconut oil, mixing until it is fully melted into the semolina.
  7. Serve up and sprinkle with your remaining goji berries.
