EVERY DAY VEGAN OATS
Usually my pattern of eating goes pretty much like this: I discover a meal that I find amazing. I want it every day, probably even for every meal. I eat this dish for so long, until I really can’t see it anymore and I get so sick of it I don’t want to have it near me for a while. the only exception is probably … my daily oatmeal.
This blogpost is a declaration of love to my daily oats. I honestly feel a bit strange even putting up a recipe for this because, let’s be honest, it’s not. It’s so easy peasy and quickly done! However, since the request keeps coming from you I thought I would share it with you. :)
It probably started when I was around 17 years old and I first started to experiment with porridge. This quickly became an obsession, to the point where I would have it for brekky, lunch and dinner until my parents told me I needed a bit more nutrients than those coming from fruits, grains and nuts … yep, you’ve read correctly. you can top your oats with so many different things, make them taste like all different flavors, make Christmas oats with cinnamon and cardamon spice, or tropical with fruits like pineapple and coconut. The options are endless!
Right now, that summer is here and all of a sudden it’s become really HOT, I like to prep my daily breakfast like in the following recipe.
To be honest, anytime I get the question of you guys how I prepare my oatmeal, it’s kind of confusing for me, as I like to change things up every day and don’t have a set “recipe” but it was fun to measure things for once and write it down. I don’t ever weigh the amount of oats I usually eat, but for this recipe I did and the scale said 70g.
Also a little pro tip for summer:
now that temperatures are rising, I like to cook the oats the evening before and let them sit with a plate on top over night. The perfect addition to me right now is also soaked chia seeds: take 1 tbsp. of chia seeds with about 15 tbsp. water / plant milk, stir, stir again two hours later and place in fridge over night.
150ml oat milk (or plant based alternative)
1 tsp. grounded flax seeds
toppings: sesame paste, kakao nibs, almonds, coconut, …
HERE’S HOW YOU MAKE IT
Mix the first five ingredients together and cook on the stove on medium head until the oats start swelling. Turn down to low heat and keep stirring. Cut the apple into little pieces and either fry it in a separate pan or mix with the oats and KEEP STIRRING (this goes for the rest of the recipe haha).
Turn off the stove and either let everything sit for another 10 minutes or pour into your favorite bowl straight away. Add chia pudding, toppings and the fruit you have in your kitchen and enjoyyy!
As I said, it feels strange, to even call this a recipe. You can alter the flavors any time and change things up as much as you can. :) Right now I’m afraid I am really addicted to tahini (sesame paste) in my oats - it’s just crazy yum and good for you with great amounts of lecithin, magnesium, potassium, E- and B-Vitamins and high in unsaturated fat. Perhaps the next blogpost should be a love declaration to tahini haha.
