This is a huge hit at our house.... especially with my husband. He loves eating oatmeat while at work... so the night before he leaves I make this in the corckpot and it is ready for him in the morning... and the house smells amazing!!! I use Maple Syrup because I try to never use refined sugar... besides... it's a great sugar substitute... if you don't have any Maple Syrup you can use 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar. Here is what you will need....
Crock Pot Oatmeal
2 Cups of Steel Cut Oatmeat
8 Cups of Water
1 Tablespoon Good Vanilla
1 Cinnamon Stick
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
Pinch of Salt
This is what Steel Cut Oatmeal looks like... it is so delisious... almost nutty!
Throw everything in the Crock Pot and I usually set on 6 hours.
This is what it looks like when done. I keep a Plastic Container in the fridge full of this delicious oatmeal and eat throughout the week.
You can add raisens, nuts, cranberries, blueberries, ... my kids pour a little french vanilla creamer in there..
These are seriously good... and the fact that there is NOTHING in them that is bad for you makes them taste that much better! Here is what you will need....
Brown Rice Crispy Treats
2 Cups Brown Rice Puff Cereal
1 Cup Instant Oats
1/2 Cup of finely chopped raw nuts, I used Raw Pumpkin Seeds and Almonds
1/2 Cup Brown Rice Syrup
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
4 Tablespoons Soy Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 Cup (half a stick) Earth Balance Vegan Butter
Brown Rice Puffy Cereal
Ground Pumpkin Seeds and Almonds
In a Saucepan combine butter, both syrups, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon...
Cook on medium heat until well disolved.... about 5 minutes
In a Large Bowl... mix togethers dry ingredients.
Pour hot syrup and mix well... Refridgerate for about an hour.
Using a small cookie scoop.... make little round balls...
These are pretty simple... but you can get creative... add raisens... cranberries... cocoa powder.... the possibilites are endless.....
Oh... keep refridgerated until goobled up!
I discovered French Lentils last year and prefer them now over regular green lentils. They are small, dark speckled and almost peppery when cooked. Very forgiving and easy to make.... I usually cook 1 part lentil to 4 parts liquid. Here is what You will need
FRENCH CURRY LENTILS
1 Cup French Lentils
4 Cups Water
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Tablespoon Better Than Boullion, Veggie
1 Tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos
1 Teaspoon Garam Masala
1 Teaspoon Curry Powder
1 Teaspoon Turmeric
From top Clockwise... Curry, Garam Masala,Turmeric
Better than Boullion, Veggie
Throw EVERYTHING but the Spinach and Cilantro in the pot. Bring to a Boil and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 30 minutes or until lentils are soft and tender.
Rough chop the Spinach and Cilantro
Mix all together... the Spinach will cook with the heat of the dish!

My family ate these like it was their last meal. Here is what you will need...
2 Potatoes, Peeled and Chopped
1 1/2 Cups TVP (Textured Vegetable Protien)
1/4 Cup Vegan Cheese, (I used Follow Your Heart Motz)
2 Cups Chopped Spinach
1 Cup Chopped Mushrooms, I used Crimini
1/4 Cup Onion, I used Red because I like the sweetness (like me)
1/4 Cup Tomato Sauce
1/2 Packet of your favorite Taco Seasoning
12 Corn Tortillas
This is the brand of cheese I use. 100% Vegan, it melts very nicely and is GMO Free!!!
This is what TVP looks like... it also comes in smaller chunks.
Cook the Potatoes and onions with about 2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil for about 2-3 minutes.
Add the mushrooms... cook for about 2-3 minutes
Add the TVP and the Spinach... Combine well.
Add the Taco Seasoning
Add the Tomato Sauce...
Add water 1 Tablespoon at a time until the mixture is moist... but not running, you want it to stay together.
Add the cheese and turn burner off... mix well.
This is what the mixture should look like.
Steam your tortillas in a bag in the Microwave for about 2-3 minutes.
Scoop a good size portion of mixture into the tortilla...
Fold over. Make all of them just like this and set aside.
Heat a little bit of the veggie oil (about 1/4 cup) and pan fry a couple at a time until nice and brown and crispy on the outside. Place on paper towels or kitchen towels if you don't like to waste paper (like me)
They are so delicious!!!! After I fry them up I open them up a bit and add some lettuce and hot sauce or salsa. Serve with some rice.
Also note that you can make these in advance a day or two before and just keep in fridge... just don't fry! You can also make these, do not fry and put in freezer bags and freeze.... the day you want to make some, just defrost and fry. Very easy recipe and very good!!!
