ORANGE AND YOGHURT SEMOLINA DESSERT WITH GINGER HONEY

pink

When I was a student and lived in a student corridor (maybe it is called dorm but we did live in very long corridors, one on top of the other) I must have eaten hectolitres of yoghurt every month, it is one of the few foods I remember eating there. Most of us lived on it because it was cheap and quick, but it took me many years before I could eat it again and still I avoid yoghurt with muesli. I am far more fastidious now about which yoghurt I eat now and I almost always choose Greek yoghurt and eat it with acacia honey, that is pure pleasure to me.

I have now been thinking about making a semolina dessert but I wanted it to be lighter than it usually is, more fluffy if you know what I mean. I like semolina a lot but sometimes it can feel s a bit stodgy so one day when there was a a bit left over, I tried mixing it with yoghurt (Greek obviously) just to see how it was and I fell in love at the first spoon.

Here I have made a wintery semolina dessert with yoghurt and orange topped with honey and fresh ginger that adds a certain tang to the dish! I love it but then I love most things with Greek yoghurt and ginger. You can obviously use your favourite natural yoghurt as long as it isn’t too thin.
