Mix stevia, salt and cinnamon in milk and shake to mix thoroughly
Add steel cut oats and shake
Put in refrigerator overnight
In the morning, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Think outside the recipe:
For creamier oatmeal, add 1/2-1 tbsp chia seeds before allowing to sit overnight, or some Greek Yogurt after the oats have set overnight (the yogurt seems to inhibit the oats from soaking up the milk). Some topping suggestions: berries, nuts, coconut crisps or shredded coconut.
Crumbled hamburger, cooked (turkey, grass-fed beef, or bison)
Bubbie’s fermented dill relish
Dijon or yellow mustard
Salad dressing of choice
Top with warm burger
Dress the salad and enjoy!
Tips: Try different dressings and toppings to mimic the same flavors you enjoy on a burger. A sun-dried tomato vinaigrette can help approximate ketchup, and a creamy Annie’s Goddess dressing helps to stretch the mustard flavor without over-salting. If these options won’t work for whatever reason, olive oil and vinegar, salt and pepper are remarkably tasty. If you prefer a cheeseburger and you tolerate cheese, top with some shredded, grass- fed cheddar.
Crumbled coconut crisps (suggestion – Dang from Whole Foods, found in or near the bulk aisle)
Combine salad ingredients in whatever ratios you prefer.
Toss with the dressing and serve immediately.
Tip: If you need to put your salad together in advance, put the dressing on the bottom of a salad bowl, next add your berries, then put the greens and crunchies on top. Toss only when you’re ready to serve. This buys you time and avoids soggy greens and coconut crisps!
Persian Lime infused olive oil (2 parts)
Coconut infused white vinegar (1 part)
Honey ginger infused white vinegar (1 part)
½-1 tsp cinnamon (to taste–optional)
Combine dressing ingredients in a sealed jar and shake thoroughly.
Tip: Remember, you can always add more cinnamon, but you can’t take it out!
Tip: I have found the most important part of the dressing recipe is the flavor-infused vinegar. Just mix equal parts plain olive oil with a fruit- or other flavor-infused vinegar and shake!
