Mushroom Ginger Congee

Served in a bowl, Congee is a thick Asian comfort food that can soothe a sore throat or just make you feel better after a bad day. The mushrooms and ginger are great for getting your immune system back on track.

Slow Cooker Banana Hazelnut Torte Oatmeal

This tastes like a cake I had almost 20 years ago. The banana and chocolate go perfectly with the flavor of the hazelnuts. This is a really simple oatmeal to throw together before you go to bed. You can toast the nuts the night before or in the morning.

Slow Cooker PB&J Oatmeal

Just like a PB&J sandwich, this recipe can always be made with basic pantry staples. I like strawberry jam, but feel free to use grape jelly or even orange marmalade if thatís your favorite. You can even get wacky and use almond or cashew butter in place of the peanut butter.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Coffee Cake Oatmeal

Savor the flavors of fall with this decadent oatmeal that practically cooks itself!

Slow Cooker Vanilla Fig Oatmeal

If you donít have orange flower water, itís fine to leave it out. It adds a very subtle sweet flavor and aroma. This recipe yields a rich, filling and sweet bowl of oats that will keep you going until lunch!

Slow Cooker Floral Pear-Cardamom Oatmeal

Sweet pears mingle with the fragrances of rosewater and cardamom in this unique and decadent spin on breakfast!

Slow Cooker Apple Pecan Blondie Oatmeal

The maple extract and crunchy pecans in this comforting bowl will fool your brain into thinking youíre having a blondie for breakfast. Yum!

Slow Cooker Maple Pear Walnut Cake Oatmeal

This one tastes like fall in a bowl! If you donít have maple extract, just use maple syrup as your sweetener to add that maple flavor. The maple really makes you think of the autumn leaves, the pear adds a little tart and a little sweet, and the walnuts add just the right amount of crunch.

Slow Cooker Vegan Elvis Oatmeal

If Elvis had been a vegan, this is how he would have started the day. This is a play on his favorite sandwich--a grilled peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich. Itís creamy, sweet, peanutty, and has a touch of smokiness and salt.

Steel-Cut Oat Bean Chili

This is my new go-to chili. It has almost no hands-on prep, uses ingredients from the pantry and is great for leftovers too. The smoky flavor and hearty beans make it just as good in a big bowl with a few tortilla chips as tucked away in a taco or burrito.

Veggie Oat Taco Filling

Steel-cut oats mimic the mouthfeel of vegan crumbles while being completely free of processed ingredients. They also add heartiness to the veggie and bean mixture. This is the perfect way to sneak in some veggies for the picky eaters in your house. My picky eater, Cheryl, loves this!

Steel-Cut Oat Sausage Crumbles

This is one of my favorite staples and I keep some in the freezer all the time for last minute pizzas. The spices give it a traditional Italian sausage flavor. The oats give it a chewy texture and the spices even turn the oats the color of sausage. Itís at home on a pizza or sprinkled over biscuits and gravy.

Chickpea Veggie Soup

This healthy soup tastes like you slaved over a hot stove all day but comes together fast enough to eat any weeknight. Sweet potatoes, carrots and kale make this delicious. Using steel-cut oats as your grain of choice makes the soup thick and hearty, too!
