Deluxe Apple Pie Oatmeal Porridge (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

Deluxe Apple Pie Oatmeal Porridge-- and YES, that is a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream-- (optional)

The Crazy Carrot Cake Oatmeal Porridge (Vegan and Gluten-Free) was such a hit that I thought I would add in some more tarted-up porridges.  Today you will find a recipe for Deluxe Apple Pie Oatmeal Porridge-- the "deluxe" reference alludes to the inclusion of more than 5 ingredients (I don't think any recipe should contain more than 5 ingredients in this stressful world we live in, but, sometimes, alas, more is tastier...)  This could be your company's-here breakfast.  This could also be adapted to the crockpot with very little hassle.  Be sure to use the best organic ingredients as much as you are able.





1 C. Steel Cut Oats (use a GF brand)
1 T. Chia Seed
3 Apples, cored and chopped (skin on)
1/2 tsp. Salt (or to taste)
2 T. Cinnamon
1 small nob fresh Ginger, peeled and chopped fine (or grated)
6-8 Dates, no pits
1/2 C. Thompson's Raisins
Splash of Apple Cider Vinegar (or unsweetened Apple Juice)
2-3 C. Water

  • Sweetener (I used Raw Honey)
  • Almond Milk
  • MaraNatha Raw Almond Butter

Method:
  1. In a large pot combine Oats, Chia Seed, Apples, Salt, Cinnamon, Ginger, Dates, Raisins, Apple Cider Vinegar, and Water.  Bring to boil on high heat
  2. When porridge boils, lower heat to lowest setting and put lid on the pot.
  3. Check pot a couple of times over next 15-25 minutes.  Porridge will be ready when, if stirred, most of moisture has turned into a gooey gel and the oats are soft.
  4. Transfer porridge to individual bowls.  Swoosh some sweetener and about a teaspoon (or to taste) of Almond Butter into each bowl and add the Almond Milk.
  5. Enjoy!

3 Quick Delicious Refreshing Carrot Salads

 These 3 carrot salads are all vegan, but not all familiar. It only goes to show that carrots have a life of their own in the Veggie World. When I go scouting for a delectable and easy-to-make vegan recipe, I like to think I vet the best on the Internet. I check out various social venues-- Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest-- and google for the top-pagers as well. Then I read over the selection and toss the ones that sound a little too traditional or fussy.  1.  Viral TikTok Carrot Salad with Asian Flare (with Instagram's Stephanie Manzinali that.veganbabe) *that.veganbabe* demonstrates how to put this ribbon salad together in a flash. You will find other great salads that include carrots among her repertoire as well. Go HERE to the post. 2. Spicy Carrot Salad on Youtube with Everyday Gourmet  This looks very tangy and adventuresome for people who like a little zing in their summertime meals. Carrots are sweet, and some honey is also added to the recipe (I guess you could us

The Power of Flowers

Fragrant Flowers on our Morning Walk In my more youthful days of gardening I was all about organic food plants.  As I get older I have begun to enjoy planting and caring for flowers and herbs more. That is not to say that I do not have organic food gardening as a priority!  This year my husband has stepped into the gap in a big way (the 'gap' being my spending less time in the garden).  He has a 5-gallon pail of compost tea burbling away at all times, another pail of comfrey tea brewing under the grape arbor, and is experimenting with strewing agricultural lime in any patch of ground my eyes have fallen upon.   We have just put in  Saskatoon berry bushes, a few Sea Buckthorns, and 3 Sour Cherry trees (or bushes or whatever they will be) as well as the usual assortment of greens (kale, chard, collards, cilantro, parsley, romaine, etc.) and beans and a vast forest of little tomato plants, many donated by kind friends and neighbors.   We also have a square foot herb
