And what makes the whole thing so healthy I hear you ask? Compote is actually a treat, I know. But I got this little problem solved. My compote is naturally sweetened with only a little maple syrup and, as the name suggests, I’ve used chia seeds for binding to replace the starch.

Instead of the mirabelle plums, you can also take any other stone fruit that is currently in season, of course. It also works great with berries, too. Depending on the acidity of the fruit, you should then adjust the amount of maple syrup maybe.

Today, I’ll have this compote with my creamy vegan rice pudding for dinner. I simply add 2 tablespoons of dessicated coconut to my rice pudding before cooking to make it even more coconutty (yes, that’s a word πŸ™‚).

You can enjoy your Chia Mirabelle Compote warm & cold and it stays fresh in the fridge for about a week. But in our home it is always nibbled before. Have fun cooking and feasting!

  • 500 g mirabelle plums
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  1. Halve your mirabelle plums and stone them.

  2. Put all ingredients in a pot and let it simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes.

  3. Take it off the stove. Put your compote in a clean glass (preferably boiled) and let it cool. The binding increases even further during the cooling.

  4. Now you can enjoy your compote anytime, as a dessert or creamy-fruity spread. The compote keeps best in the fridge and should be eaten within a week.

I always choose organic produce whenever possible. Itβ€˜s not only better for my health (and yours, too), but also for our environment. πŸŒπŸ’«πŸ’š
