Spicy Oatmeal Breakfast
Here’s a recipe to get your morning started in a yummy way:
1/3 c dry rolled oats
1/2 c. milk (or another 1/2 c. of water instead)
1/2 c water
dash salt (pink Himalayan salt is yummy!)
3-4 cardamom seeds from 1 pod
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. organic rose petal
1 medjool date minced (add this at the end when you cover the oats)
Put all ingredients in a saucepan and heat to a near boil, then turn the heat down to medium-low and occasionally stir, scraping the bottom every so often for 15+ minutes until the oats are cooked to your taste. Cover and turn the heat off for the last few minutes. Add a spot of ghee or butter, perhaps a spot of maple syrup, and milk poured on top. Enjoy!
This is especially nice for Vata and Pitta constitutions. Serves one person.
