Cooking Time: 10 min

Change up your usual breakfast routine with a touch of the exotic. The zing of ginger and a touch of honey in the granola works wonderfully with tangy-sweet pineapple; the cinnamon and vanilla in the Cottage cheese add just the perfect sweetness


2 tsp minced fresh gingerroot 10 ml
1 tbsp liquid honey 15 ml
1 tbsp water 15 ml
3/4 cup large-flake rolled oats 175 ml
1/4 cup chopped pecans 60 ml
2 cups Cottage cheese 500 ml
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon 0.5 ml
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 2 ml
2 cups chopped fresh or unsweetened canned pineapple 500 ml
The granola can be made ahead and stored in a glass jar or cookie tin for up to 3 days. The Cottage cheese mixture can be stirred together and refrigerated overnight ready for quick assembly in the morning.


Step 1
In a small skillet or saucepan, combine gingerroot, honey and water. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often. Simmer for about 2 minutes or until ginger is translucent. Add oats and pecans and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until toasted and dry. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Step 2
In a bowl, combine Cottage cheese, cinnamon and vanilla. Divide among 4 serving bowls; top with pineapple and granola.
