Yesterday, I made some fancy oatmeal for breakfast. It was a big hit with everyone. Here's the recipe:
In a microwave safe bowl combine:
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1 Tbs flaxseed meal
1 Tbs sunflower seeds
soymilk (We made some with vanilla and some with plain but both tasted good. As for how much soymilk to use, this is a personal choice. My kids like it with varying amounts. You need to put in at least enough to cover the oatmeal mixture completely.)
Sprinkle cinnamon over the top and microwave for about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes. You can always add more soymilk now if it seems to dry.
The dessert was a strawberry ice cream that took about 3 minutes to make. I used my Vita-Mix but i'd imagine another high powered blender would work as well. Here's the recipe:
Place the following in a blender:
1 1/2 cups soymilk (we used a mixture of plain and vanilla)
3 unsulphured dried pinappple rings
Blend until pineapple is ground up. In retrospect I think I should have soaked the pineapple to make this easier on my blender. It also would have given me a smoother, less gritty end product.
1 10 oz bag of frozen organic strawberries
1 Tbs vanilla sugar
Blend until combined. If using a Vita-Mix, use the tamper to press food into blades. For other machines, turn off blender, scrape down sides and blend a little more. That's it, just serve and eat. The result was delicious!
