The temperatures are dropping here in New York and I’m still in pumpkin mode so today I added pumpkin to my oatmeal and it was delicious. Paired with some spices, this makes a delicious, hearty and warming breakfast for these chilly mornings.
1 cup organic oats
2 cups filtered water
1/2-1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or 1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon and nutmeg
2 tablespoons organic pumpkin puree
Pistachios or roasted pumpkin seeds for the topping
Maple syrup for sweetener, to taste
Place oats and water in a small saucepan and bring slowly to boil, stirring frequently. Add spices and pumpkin puree. Stir in until everything is warm and oats are soft. Serve warm in a bowl and top with a swirl of maple syrup (if needed) and pistachios or roasted pumpkin seeds.
