Better Than Oatmeal
BETTER THAN OATMEAL
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 handfull sultana raisins
1 handfull chopped dried apricots
1 handfull chopped candied ginger (optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups 7 grain cereal (wheat, oats, millet, barley, corn, spelt and
I mix all these ingredients together and then just throw about 1/2 a cup per person into 1 cup boiling water (per person) and simmer, stiring regularly for 5 - 10 minutes.
Microwaving for 3 minutes (in a big bowl) works really well too.
Sometimes I add skim milk and brown sugar (or maple syrup) when I serve this.
It's so yummy we even eat it for dessert.
Other chopped dried fruit works really well too. I like the
cranberries because they have a tart refreshing flavor.
7 grain cereal is available pretty widely in north america, but you
could also make your own.
I use it to make pancakes, crackers, cookies and muffins (anything that you would use oats in.)
I also used it to make my lentil tacos less runny, and would like to try it for making burgers.
