This summer, lighten heavy puddings with a twist of citrus, like in the Le Pain Quotidien Cookbook's chia seed porridge. Heady blood orange juice soaks the seeds, and it all comes together with fresh, tart yogurt.

Tips: This recipe couldn't really be simpler, but if you truly want to go effortless, buy some fresh-squeezed blood orange juice to soak the chia seeds, along with two whole blood oranges. No squeezing required.

Tweaks: If the singular flavor of blood orange proves to be too much, tuck tiny slices of fresh nectarine into the porridge. It's a flavor and texture contrast that adds to the dish without overshadowing its main component.
