Tart, crisp green apple is seasoned apple pie style with cinnamon and lemon juice before being covered with hearty oatmeal. A well-balanced trio of salty, sweet and refreshing flavors completes the dish, as roasted almonds, brown sugar and mint are placed atop the oatmeal. This recipe comes to us from Trudy of veggie.num.num.
- 1 green apple
- a squeeze lemon juice
- a dash cinnamon
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1 cup non-dairy milk alternative
- 1/4 cup almonds, roasted
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- fresh mint, to taste
Grate the apple and place it in a serving bowl. Squeeze a little lemon juice over it and grate the cinnamon on top.
Place the oats and milk into a small saucepan over medium low heat. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, or until the oatmeal is fully cooked.
Once the porridge is cooked, spoon it over the seasoned apple, top with the dry roasted almonds and the brown sugar. Drizzle a little pour of extra rice milk over the porridge and garnish with a little mint. Enjoy!
