out of oatmeal

This morning I woke up craving oatmeal, only to find the oatmeal jar sadly empty.

So I used what we had on hand, and made something even better.

  • 1/3 cup quinoa
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • rice milk
  1. in a heavy bottomed pan combine all ingredients and just cover with rice milk
  2. cover pan and simmer until rice milk is absorbed, about 10 minutes
  3. uncover and stir in enough water to make it on the liquidy side
  4. simmer until water is mostly absorbed
  5. serve with diced peaches or other seasonal fruit
