Salted Caramel Pistachio Oat Pudding (or porridge if you like?)

I knew it’d take a cracking dish to get me back to the blog… and this is most definitely it.  Life has been multi-dimentional and so full lately, in the best possible way… But here’s some blog love.  If you’re a pudding for breakfast lover then this should satiate you’re sweet yearnings.  It’s sweet, salty, spicy and creamy.  And as it happens it’s also nutritious, sugar-free and vegan.  So.
