Warm oats are cooked in cashew milk with apple pie spices, diced apple, ripe banana, sweetened with stevia and dates served with banana slices on top!
We usually start each morning with a smoothie but I broke the tradition this morning. I awoke with a burst of energy and a desire to try something new.
I started combining ingredients to create an apple pie like experience that was nourishing and satisfying. With complete success it tasted so good we ate it all. Fortunately I made it with two large healthy servings in mind for a wholesome start to our week!
Oats and Apples and warm oatmeal remind me of the fall, of yummy warm oatmeal varieties at home with my family, of the Quaker packets I would have at work in the morning and enjoy in my cubicle with a cup of black hazelnut coffee. Now I can enjoy it with my sweetheart filled with wholesome ingredients and served with a cup of our favorite coffee. Yum!
Oats are popular all over the world! With apples in season it makes a meal to be enjoyed across the world! To create this satisfying meal you will need:
I hope you enjoy this breakfast as much as we did!
For week 3 of Vegan MoFo 2014 expect World Fusion Vegan Cuisine from me! Inspiration for the theme came from my most favorite cookbook:
I have yet to try a recipe I didn't absolutely drool over, it will have you feeling like a top grade chef! The pictures are so beautiful, the recipes are very creative and it is filled with inspirational quotes. The book is very high quality with each recipe hand crafted. My book is very worn out and I'm so happy to have a copy.
I may have told the story once before but for those who haven't heard it hear is how I stumbled upon this book....
I was working in a corporate environment in San Diego. The woman who sat behind me was once a vegan but was no longer practicing that lifestyle. She was intrigued and we'd often share life, as you do in such close circumstances. She mentioned she had a cookbook that they no longer used. She surprised me with it and it was the "Blossoming Lotus" cookbook! I was shocked and started telling her all about how Gerald spent time in Kauai learning Structural Integration and his favorite restaurant while he was living there was none other than The Blossoming Lotus Cafe! He would eat there daily if he could and even treated his fellow classmates to a meal there he loved it so much. He raved about it to me and now I held their cookbook via a synchronicity! The very first recipe I tried was a smashing success. Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Pilaf covered in Avalon's Magic Mushroom Gravy! Doesn't that sound good? I love their creative names.
One of our favorite meals I ever made was Sat Cit Ananda's Chana Masala with Mahatma's Mung Dahl and Mango Chutney! I gave it 10 stars "Best Ever", it tasted like we went out to an Indian restaurant but maybe better! :)
I highly recommend this cookbook to vegans and non-vegans alike! YUM!
To a great new week!
PS - I was so stoked to start the week with good news! The Blueberry Nicecream enjoyed last week was featured in Vegan MoFo 2014 – Sunday Round Up
