Oatmeal Organic Breakfast

This is one of those staples that not too many people like, having been force-
fed it in their younger days, but something that I feel to be completely

A good steaming bowl of freshly made oatmeal (none of the microwaveable
sort for me thank you!) is one of the greater pleasures in life.

And the best part is that you can add just about anything to this dish to
highlight and sweeten it. I personally prefer to use maple syrup or some brown
sugar to complement my porridge. I also use fresh strawberries when they are
in season as well.

         2¼ cups water
         1 cup rolled oats
         1 cup milk (of your choice)
         ½ cup raisins (optional)
         ¼ chopped walnuts
         Sugar or other sweetener to taste
         Salt to taste
         Cinnamon to taste

Boil the water and the salt in a suitable saucepan. Add in the milk and the oats
when the water is boiling, stirring continually so the oats don’t become lumpy.

Keep stirring until the oats are cooked, about 5 minutes, add the nuts and the
raisins, mix well and turn off the heat. Cover the pan and let it sit for about 3-4

Serve with your sweetener of choice and more milk if needed.
