Orange Oatmeal

WP_20150510_009

This oatmeal is super nutritious and delicious. It is ideal for cold days. This oatmeal contains tumeric, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Besides it has orange and carrot which is why the oatmeal is orange color. I blend chopped orange and carrot with the spices and then added it to the oatmeal in the casserole. Working with colors is really fun. It is like magic in the kitchen. Colors make food more interasting and the can tell so much about a dish.

I topped this super oatmeal with sautted bananas, blackberries, chopped macadamias and two pieces or orange and it’s peel. Sautte bananas is a new element I am including ultimately in some of my dishes. It brings out the sweetness and aroma of the holy banana. I spray a pan with coconul oil, add a pinch of vanilla essence (or coconut essence or both), a dash of cinnamon and let the banana slices to cook for one side about 3mins until golden, flip them and cook for 3more minutes until golden.
