Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal

Dear PCRM supporter,

Oatmeal is touted for being a heart-healthy food, but why? Oats have a significant amount of soluble fiber, the type of fiber that helps to pull cholesterol out of your body. Serve this warm breakfast staple with nondairy milk and for a special treat try pumpkin spice flavored soymilk. Add a pinch of ground cloves to pack in extra flavor.


Makes 4 servings

2 cups old-fashioned oats
4 cups water
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons agave nectar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in saucepan.

Cook over medium heat until liquid is mostly absorbed, stirring occasionally.
