Quinoa Oat Cereal
I grew up being told to eat my oatmeal… That it is good for you… That it sticks to your bones.. That you need it to have a good day at school… We had oatmeal or some kind of hot cereal every morning as I was growing up, especially in the winter. My dad usually made it before he went to work…. So, that meant that by the time I got up for school it was lumpy and not so appetizing. Saying that I really didn’t eat any breakfast as oatmeal wasn’t for me… I didn’t like the taste or the texture.
I was told about this recipe from a friend at work. This recipe has quinoa and steel cut oats in it. It has dried fruits and nuts and spices. I was intrigued, especially as you start it the night before. I only made half the recipe as it serves 4 and I thought, just in case we didn’t like I didn’t want to waste any of the ingredients. I also had some California Walnuts that I toasted to put on top.
The verdict ~ I loved the taste. It had just the right amount of spices and the crunchiness of the nuts were perfect. My hubby added condensed milk and vanilla yogurt to his and he said he would eat it again if I made it… It was a hit.
