Tahini, coconut and pineapple are a perfect combo. I use tahini a lot for overnight breakfast oats and chia puddings – it really isn’t just for hummus! Frying and coating the pineapple with sesame seeds and coconut mixes all those lovely exotic flavours and it provides the accompanying chia pudding with a bit of texture.
This is a great breakfast for these mixed summer days, when you want something sunny but could do with a bit of warmth too, because let’s face it, August isn’t quite the sunshine month so far.
Pineapple tahini & coconut chia delight (serves one)
- 100ml coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 120g pineapple – cut into chunks
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
Blend the coconut milk with the tahini and stir through the chia seeds. Leave for 1/2 hour or overnight.
Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan and fry the pineapple chunks for a couple of minutes. Then add the sesame seeds and desiccated coconut and toss with the pineapple to coat the pieces. Continue to fry for a couple more minutes. Serve on top of the chia pudding.
