Cranberry chai oatmeal

Submitted by: DEESTRA

Introduction

This recipe was inspired by HealthierLynn (thanks!!), and since I couldn't find her version in the recipe database, I entered this one myself. This recipe was inspired by HealthierLynn (thanks!!), and since I couldn't find her version in the recipe database, I entered this one myself.

Ingredients

    1/2 c. rice milk (or soy milk, or plain milk, or whatever)
    1/2 c. brewed green tea
    2-3 whole cardamom pods
    4 whole cloves
    1/2 in. cinnamon stick

    1/2 c. oats (not instant)
    extra liquid as necessary
    1/4 c. dried cranberries

Directions

Brew 1/2-1c. of green or black tea. Combine milk, tea, and spices in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Just as the liquid starts to boil, add the oats and cranberries. Simmer, stirring regularly, until oats are tender and water is absorbed, about 5 min. for rolled oats.

If using steel-cut oats, simmer 5-10 min. longer, adding more liquid as necessary (I used water, but I think more tea would be good here).

Be careful to take out all of the whole spices before eating, or be aware of picking them out as you eat!

Alternately, you could just use a prepared chai (like Oregon chai, etc.) in place of the green tea and spices, but those often have a lot of sugar added, which is so unnecessary! : )

Makes 2 1/2-c. servings
