I’ve been playing with the recipes from Jessica Seinfeld, attempting to hide more vegetables in my food. The chocolate cake with beet puree was a disaster, but I am enjoying her oatmeal idea.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (we’ve been experimenting with palm sugar)
  • 1/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • dried fruit and nuts
  • maple syrup

1. In a small saucepan, combine the milk, sugar, sweet potato, vanilla, and cinnamon. Bring to a gentle boil and stir in the oatmeal. Reduce the head and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, until the oatmeal is soft and creamy. Stir in the peanut butter.

2. Spoon the oatmeal into bowls, topping with dried fruit, nuts, and maple syrup.

    A bunch of new recipes just showed up in my Google Reader, and I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy the stories and the inspiration! I get into food ruts (which are probably common for most cooks, but which I feel especially sometimes as a vegetarian–and of varying degrees of poverty!), and these new ideas are great. Thanks!
