10-minute winter fruit compote
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Two simple steps make a deliciously fruity pudding spiced with cinnamon and cloves. It's easy to make in the microwave and counts as one of your 5-a-day
- STEP 1
Tip the dried fruit, orange juice and whole spices into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High for 4-5 mins, stirring halfway through until the juices become sticky and the fruits are plump.
- STEP 2
Leave the compote to stand for a minute and serve in bowls with spoonfuls of yogurt or fromage frais.
GIVING IT A TWIST
Replace the cinnamon stick with a whole star anise for liquorice flavour. Use grapefruit juice instead of orange. Throw in a handful of nuts or sesame and sunflower seeds just before serving.
