This is a recipe that was requested last week – I figured I’d better put this up before putting up anything requested for this week!
Quinoa Oatmeal Sqares
- 1 c. uncooked quinoa, rinsed
- 1 c. steel cut oats
- 3 c. water
- 2 – 3 T. yogurt
Soak the quinoa, steel cut oats, and yogurt in the water overnight. The next morning add 1/4 t. of salt to the soaked mixture. Cook over a medium heat until thick, about 25 – 30 minutes.
Pour the cooked mixture into a greased 9 x 9 pan. Sprinkle the top with sesame seeds. Refrigerate about 20 minutes or until cool – you want it to cool enough to congeal into a solid shape. Then cut into squares, and fry the squares in butter.
I’ve had steel cut oats sitting around for ages and was happy to have a chance to use them for something! This has a pleasant but simple flavor, as you can probably tell by looking at the short list of ingredients. To serve, I slathered mine with butter; the kids spread butter and homemade plum jam on theirs.
