If you've ever read our weekly Monday series in the blog called "From Our Kitchen Table", you know that I eat a version of oats practically every day of the week, but this was not always the case. Despite always being a kid who ate just about everything, I had a nemesis: oatmeal. I hated oatmeal with a capital H! Partly because I had always tried the one my grandpa made which was completely bland, mushy and just looked plain boring! And let me just say that my grandpa was a total gourmand, but oatmeal was his kryptonite for sure.
The truth is that oatmeal, or oat porridge as I like to call it now since it doesn't bring back that boring visual of a bowl filled with gray goop, can be absolutely delicious. It all rests on three things, the types of oats you use, the technique you use for cooking them and what you add to that pot, and of course, the toppings. You know me and toppings right? I once used to daydream that I was going to own an ice cream shop that only had one kind of ice cream (chocolate) and 500 options for toppings. Yeah... I love them. This particular recipe I'm sharing today as part of our membership program, is quite literally my perfect porridge, meaning the kind I love and can make over and over again. Plus it's so easy to make you can easily memorize it and just whip it up early in the morning. It only takes 10 minutes to cook!Read More
