I absolutely adore peaches and tend to buy them in bulk to make all kinds of wonderful things . . .  Read More »

Multi Grain Cereal with Dates, Orange and Cinnamon

In this Multi Grain Cereal with Dates, Orange and Cinnamon recipe, Medjool dates are stirred into the hot cereal as it cooks, slowly dissolving into the grains and thereby, along with a bit of honey, adding sweetness to the recipe. Once the cereal has finished cooking (in about 3 minutes), some orange zest and juice and a dash of cinnamon are swirled into the pot to make things even more flavorful. A drizzle of honey, along with a few diced dates and a sprinkling of sliced almonds goes on top right before serving, making for a very fast, healthy and delicious breakfast that, thanks to all the healthy grains, will easily hold you until lunch. That’s great for kids at school as well as adults who would rather not have to head to the snack machine hours before lunch. Read More »


Banana-Nut Bulgur Wheat Hot Cereal with Cinnamon-Honey Yogurt

I think I’ve found my new favorite hot cereal. You’ll remember in my earlier post for Lemon Dill Bulgur Salad with Chickpeas, Cucumber and Feta Cheese that I’ve discovered the wonders of Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat with Soy. In that same post I alluded to a great way to use bulgur wheat as a hot cereal – and here it is: hot cooked Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat mixed with brown sugar and toasted walnuts and topped with slices of banana. As tasty as this combination is, we won’t stop here – no, no. We’re going to put some Greek yogurt, mixed with honey and cinnamon, on top of it all. And so, may I present: Banana-Nut Bulgur Wheat Hot Cereal with Cinnamon-Honey Yogurt. Delicious, easy and so good for you – you simply must make this. Read More »

Gluten Free Tropical Sunrise Buckwheat Cereal

Buckwheat cereal on its own tastes lightly nutty and pleasantly earthy. The tropical explosion comes from using coconut milk as a base for the cereal and by mixing in creamy mashed banana as the sweetener. Chunks of tart-sweet pineapple create an unexpected but perfect contrast to the light, smooth buckwheat cereal. And get this — this recipe is not only gluten-free, it’s vegan. Gasp! You don’t have to be hardcore on either of those fronts to enjoy it, though. Read More »

Gourmet Savory Hot Cereal with Bacon, Spinach, and Parmesan

This is my new go-to meal when I get home after a long day, tired and hungry. Five ingredients. Ten minutes. Rich, crispy strips of bacon with silky spinach quickly sautéed in olive oil, over a creamy, nutty ‘risotto’ of Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Cereal, sprinkled over with grated parmesan, a pinch of sea salt, and a grind of black pepper. It’s is an incredibly speedy way to a meal that’s delicious and satisfying without being too heavy. The beauty of oats is that a little salt one way or a little sugar the other is the tipping point for dinner vs. breakfast/dessert. Remember when we talked about how convenient it is to make a big pot of steel cut oats for the week, and using different toppings to keep your meals exciting? It got me to thinking about other, more savory ways you can dress up a hot cereal, and this is the first dinner-worthy combo I’ve found that’s good enough to tell the world about . (Using bacon feels a bit like cheating–what isn’t delicious with bacon? But it’s just so tasty with the oats.) And if you aren’t a fan of sweets for breakfast, it makes a fantastic start to the day, too. Read More »
