|Happiest bowl of oatmeal on earth!|
It's been a great eight month achievement thus far and still feel like there's so much room for growth.
Like the obsession with zap, zap, zap technology has gotten to let go.
Usually, I make things in the microwave because it's quick and all so simple, but the fact of the matter is that stove top cooking is actually a more enjoyable process.
One of the reasons I find microwaved oatmeal heavenly delightful is because of the burst blueberry effect.
However, I recreated that very well in the saucepan and in almost the same amount of time.
Quick Stovetop Blueberry Oatmeal
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup quick 1 minute rolled oats
1/2 cup soy milk
|On medium heat, stir the blueberries and applesauce together in a saucepan.|
|One by one, smash the blueberries with the back of a fork.|
|Mix in the spices and sugar.|
|Stir in the oats.|
|Make sure to evenly coat.|
|Pour in the milk.|
|Stir until creamy consistency.|
|Add fresh fruit and almonds if desired.|
I licked the bowl clean.
Probably won't use sugar next time for this creamy, sweet, and flavorful fibrous breakfast jumpstarts the day in a warm, fulfilling satisfaction that even the most highly sugared box cereal couldn't compare.
Relished in slow appreciation, I ate my fruity, almond oatmeal with a glass of cold water, knowing that there's nothing greater than loving nature's nutrient enriched food and not harming a single animal for this indulgent, belly pleasure.
