Recipe Inspiration

A few weeks ago my memories had taken me back to my childhood, when semolina porridge was a part of our daily routine.  Where we lived, as babies grew, their first solid meals consistent of very thin semolina porridge–just enough grain to add extra calories into a baby’s diet.  As we got older, the porridge got thicker; while less frequent in our daily diets, schools carried it on their menu, although by then, with an addition of sugar and oils.

Each time I thought about semolina porridge, it made me think about my childhood.

When the memories came flooding, I found a nearby Russian store, since I knew that ti would almost certainly carry semolina flour.  Thankfully it did.

I made my first serving of what we call “munnuya kasha” the moment I got home and offered it to Sprout.  She licked the bowl clean and asked for more. I think that I ended up making three times that day (Hubby did not want to be left out), and it has become one of Sprout’s favorite meals since.

Easy to Make Delicious Semolina Pudding Recipe
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1-2
Warning: you will fall in love with the taste, the texture and the simplicity of this recipe!
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • ⅓ c + 1 tbsp semolina flour
  • 1.5 tbsp honey or other liquid sweetener
  • ½ tsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Garnish and Sauce
  • 1 strawberry for garnish
  • 6 strawberries to blend with 2 tsp honey
  1. In a small/medium size pot bring almond milk to boil, then reduce heat to medium immediately
  2. Slowly pour semolina flour into boiling milk, while constantly stirring, so you have a smooth consistency mixture, without clumps
  3. Once the mixture begins to boil and thicken, reduce heat to the lowest setting; keep stirring for another 1-2 minutes, until it looks like porridge (pudding consistency)
  4. Stir in honey, lemon juice and vanilla
  5. Remove from heat and let it sit for 3-5 minutes, while preparing garnish and sauce
  6. Layer semolina pudding and strawberry sauce in your favorite dish, topping off with a strawberry garnish
  7. Enjoy it hot or slightly warm (the best way to have it)
  8. Semolina pudding will keep well refrigerated for 2-3 days. To reheat, add a little milk, and make sure to stir, so that the pudding does not get stuck to the bottom of the pan
You can use any berries and as much as you want to with this pudding. Sometimes I use frozen berries to cool off semolina faster, since Sprout has no reason to be patient when it.
