Semolina with blackcurrant and ginger

Plain white semolina, so simple but oh, so good! It takes about ten minutes to make and you can have it for breakfast, lunch, evening snack or even dessert. Here i made it with some blackcurrant that i stuck in the fridge after i picked them in the summer for instant summer taste in cakes, müesli or porridge. And it worked.

You can find different kind of semolina in the store. I usually use the darker kind which is rich in fibers, but this time i didn't feel like choosing the healthiest alternative and went for the white one instead. I have also seen chocolate semolina in the store which i might have to try someday. That is of course made from the chocolate wheat plant.

Semolina porridge serves 4

1 L milk of choice
1 1/2 dl semolina grains

Bring the milk to the boil. Whisk in the semolina. Cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Season with salt.

Blackcurrant with ginger

1-2 dl frozen blackcurrant berries
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp sugar

Mix all ingredients in a food processor. Put a spoonful of the mix on your  hot porridge.


  1. This looks delicious. What is semolina called in the supermarkets in Finland?
