Mofo Post #9 Breakfast Oats
We're moving house in a few weeks so I'm trying to eat and cook up what we have left and not buy too much more. For the last few days I have been skipping breakfast and going straight for lunch because we're out of cereal and porridge oats. I mentioned this to Paul to try to get him to bake bread last night and he reminded me that we had a huge jar of jumbo oats in the cupboard. I wasn't too sure about this but as I needed a good breakfast this morning I thought I ought to give it a try.
I was worried it might be a bit....bitty, I normally go for proper porridge oats, the dusty kind. But, in actual fact it was a nice texture. So I shall now proceed to eat the whole jar now until they're all gone!
This is how I like to have my porridge (my dad despairs, he's a salt and water hard case):
Half a cup of jumbo oats
1 cup of soy milk
As many raisins or sultanas as you like
A pinch of nutmeg
A Pinch of Cinnamon
1 small grated apple
Sweeten with agave or maple syrup to taste
I put all the ingredients in the saucepan except for the apple and syrup. That way the sultanas get really juicy. Stir on a medium/high heat until you get the consistency you like, I like mine quite thick. Afterwards just stir through the apple and drizzle on the syrup.
