Fresh Seasonal Dish: Cranberry Oatmeal

November 1, 2009 by lolkitty: Kaela

Since my last blog post about food seemed to be more of a hit than my other posts, I decided I’d keep adding new recipes as I tried them or invented them.  This was one of those “what’s around” dishes.


Handful of fresh cranberries
About 1 serving of Oatmeal
Dash of sugar
Enough water to cover the oats in the bowl

I took some rolled oats (none of that instant oatmeal, the regular stuff only takes 2 minutes and taste way better), put the oats in a bowl and put a handful of fresh cranberries on top. Sprinkle about a tbsp of sugar on top and pop in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Most of the cranberries will pop when it’s done.  Pour in a dash of soymilk and stir it up.  It’s very flavorful and good to warm you up!

Voila!  I could eat this stuff all day!

Mmm, Cranberries!

Mmm, Cranberries!

The best thing is that this dish is not only unbelievably delicious but it’s also really healthy for you!
The oatmeal is full of fiber, and the cranberries are full of vitamins and antioxidants.  I always try different ways to make oatmeal taste good and so far I think that this by far beats them all.
Unlike other berries, cranberries stay more firm and true to their flavor in oatmeal.  Plus, they’re very tart, but mixed into just a tiny bit of sugar, they sweeten up to a really rich flavor.
I’m the kind of girl who grew up never, ever, had canned cranberry sauce.  Cranberries are one of my favorite foods.  So I’ll share with you may cranberry recipe adventures this season.
