Apple Raisen Oatmeal by Jane Fonda, Cooking for Healthy Living
Preparation: 10 minutes * Cooking: 10 minutes * Serves 4
2 ½ cups (20 fl oz/625 ml) apple cider or apple juice
¼ cup (1 ½ oz /45g) raisins
1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ½ cups (4 ½ oz/140g) rolled oats
½ cup (4 oz/125g) nonfat plain yogurt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
When 1 was about 10 years old, I had an exam at school that was very important. That morning I ate a big bowl of hot oatmeal, something I was not accustomed to doing, I did great on the exam and began calling oatmeal “brain food.” Now I know that my childhood instincts were remarkable accurate. A hearty breakfast of complex carbohydrates like those found in oatmeal increases your attention span and ability to concentrate. I still eat it whenever I have something important to do.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the cider or juice to a bial. Stir in the raisins, apple and cinnamon, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the oats, increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the liquid is absorbed and the oats are creamy, about 6 minutes.
- To serve, divide among 4 individual bowls. Top each with an equal amount of the yogurt and nutmeg.
