Tamarillo Breakfast Crumble


I adore eating leftover crumble for breakfast so I wanted a lower sugar option that is made with breakfast in mind!

There is no butter so you can easily make this dairy-free. You have lots of freedom to personalize this versatile dish with different fruit combinations.

I always make 2 crumbles and put one in the freezer so this recipe makes 2, but just halve the recipe if you only want to make one.

The sugar & syrup can be left out for a pure option as well.

Yummy Red Tamarillo Breakfast Crumble - Twisted Citrus

Tamarillo Breakfast Crumble

INGREDIENTS
4 cups of Tamarillo
6 cups of fruit (I used stewed pears and tayberries)

CRUMBLE INGREDIENTS
3 cups oats
½ cup almond meal
½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or golden syrup would work if you haven't any maple)
*1 lemon

DIRECTIONS
Prepare the crumble by adding all the ingredients together in a large bowl and stirring to combine all the ingredients nicely, then set aside.

Prepare your fruit, I've used stewed pears as we had an abundance of them.

But if you are using fresh apples or pears, peel, core and slice them. You might like to squeeze some *lemon over the top to stop it browning.

Top and tail the tamarillos and cut into wedges so that it's easy to remove and discard of the skin.

Get out your 2 baking dishes and pop the apples in first, then snuggle the tamarillos in. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the syrup over each dish.

Then share the crumble topping between the two dishes and push down a little.

Bake one dish at 180 for approx. 50 mins.

Wrap the other one up to go in the freezer for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast.

Serve with yoghurt and pumpkin seeds.

NZ TAMARILLOS

Our big red tamarillos are the Laird’s Large variety, which, in addition to being generously proportioned, have a delightful tangy flavour that really makes the taste buds sing.

Native to Central and South America, tamarillos are famous in New Zealand. In fact, we even gave them their name! Known rather mundanely as tree tomatoes up until 1967, they were in need of an image overhaul.

The New Zealand Tree Tomato Promotions Council is responsible for dubbing them the Tamarillo - originating from the Maori word “tama,” meaning leadership, and the Spanish word “Amarillo,” meaning yellow.

We even invented the red-skinned variety right here in Aotearoa, with only yellow and purple varieties available before 1920.

Our tamarillos are handpicked, packed and transported with care so they arrive at your door with shiny, smooth, unblemished skins, bursting with flavour and ready to take pride of place in your fruit bowl.
