Almond Cinnamon Oatmeal
I just finished having almond oatmeal and it was delicious. I have been vegan for over five years and I notice that I feel the best when I eat mostly raw vegan foods. I do eat a few steamed veggies at night at times because they are a quick and healthy meal. I have an old electric wok and I steam veggies like potatoes, cabbage, carrots, onions, and beans. However, for all of my morning and midday meals, I eat as raw as possible. This morning I had this wonderful oatmeal with hemp milk. The recipe is from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen.
2 cups of oat groats, soaked overnight, and rinsed well
1/2 cup semi-soft pitted dates (I used medjool)
1 TBS ground cinnamon
2 TBS water
1/4 cup almonds
Put the soaked oats, dates, cinnamon, and water in a food processor and process until a texture similar to cooked oatmeal. For a thinner consistency, add another 1/4 cup water. (I did not do this.)
Then I added the almonds and pulsed a few times until the nuts were chopped a little bit.
Makes four servings. You can add drizzled maple syrup and any nut milk. The oatmeal should keep in the fridge for up to two days.
