This dish uses Darjeeling tea, served over yogurt with toasted almonds. This recipe calls for Greek-style yogurt but other varieties can be used as well.

Ingredients

3 tbsp. or 3 bags Darjeeling tea
3⁄4 cup dried apricots
1⁄4 cup honey
3⁄4 cup golden raisins
3⁄4 cup dried cherries
41⁄2 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
6 tbsp. toasted sliced almonds  

Steps

1. Steep tea bags in 2½ cups boiling water for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, dice apricots and place in pot with honey, raisins and cherries.

2. Discard tea bags and pour water into pot with fruits. Bring to a boil and simmer until liquid is slightly reduced and syrupy, about 15 to 20 minutes.

3. Remove from heat and cool; liquid will thicken as it cools. Serve fruit compote with yogurt and toasted almonds.
