Hi Apryl --
(for folks who don't eat oatmeal):
1 C. oats, in a large skillet, + a LITTLE margarine or oil (maybe its
not even necessary? i've just always used a little) -- brown off the
oats a bit. you can do this on high heat to make it quicker, but just
be diligent about stirring them around -- it won't take more than 5
min. when some are brown around the edges, that's good.
turn down the heat to medium and add 2 C water.
let that cook (10 min?) till most of the water is gone.
add 1 T tamari, no more! and stir it in. let it cook for a minute
longer and then its done.
serve as is or w. honey or syrup or molasses
i do not like the typical oatmeal shlock but i am very fond of this
ususally i mix the leftovers into my soy burgers, which are basically
whatever is around vegetable wise (definately incl. onions; green pepper
is nice too) + cooked soybeans + basil, oregano, pepper, and salt + a
little flour (+ the leftover toasted oatmeal). yum!
also, you could make oatmeal floar -- just run the dry oats through the
blender. some recipies call for it -- it tends to make things more
"tender" -- but never use just oatmeal flour unless you want you bread
or cookie or whatever to crumble to pieces.
i also think oatmeal bread is really tasty, if anyone has a recipie for
that . . . .
