EUROPEAN: Oatmeal

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.

FUSION: Carob Clusters

Though carob comes from the Mediterranean, I don’t know if they imagined eating it this way.

Angela, we ate these daily the month before my wedding. You always know how to cheer me up with food. We did have a hard time waiting from them to set. Sometimes we just had to put them in the freezer to speed up the process.

1 cup carob chips
1/3 cup peanut butter
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1. Place carob chips and peanut butter in a small bowl and melt in microwave (or in a double boiler). Stir until evenly combined.
2. Stir in nuts and quickly drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
3. Let set until hard. Store in refrigerator.

For a different taste, replace nuts with ½ cup raisins or ½ cup rice crispies.
