Stewed Apples | Festive Vegan Breakfast Idea



Spiced apples that have been stewed to perfection in under 15 minutes? Yes!

This easy vegan breakfast recipe idea is perfect for the festive season. The aroma of the cinnamon and nutmeg will leave your home smelling like freshly baked apple pies (without the hassle of baking...)

Who needs scented candles when you have these spices filling the air?

Ingredients
- 3 apples (any variety - I used gala)
- 100ml water
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- Freshly grated ginger
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- Toppings of your choice (coconut flakes, granola or more fruit!)

Chop the apples into bite-size pieces. Leave the skin on for extra fibre.


Add the water to a saucepan and throw in the chopped apples, along with the cinnamon, nutmeg and as much fresh grated ginger as you care for (I aim for about 1 tablespoon usually). Bring to a boil over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes until the water bubbles and gets a little bit syrupy.

Prepare your toppings. I like to add berries for skin-friendly antioxidants and ground flaxseeds for my daily helping of omega-3. Be creative with yours. Nuts and seeds work particularly well too.

Spoon the stewed apples into a bowl and finish off with the toppings of your choice.
