Recipes from the Market: Overnight Oatmeal Quick Fruit Breakfast Sundaes

Our volunteer Charlene continues to share yummy cooking tips with items that can be found in our market! Pictured here is a healthy and easy Oatmeal Sundae, that can be made with minimum prep work -- no stovetop cooking! 


Overnight Oatmeal Quick Fruit Breakfast Sundaes

In a pint jar (2 cups) with a lid, the basic proportion is equal parts oatmeal and liquid, either dairy milk or milk alternative, rice, almond, coconut. Add desired fruit and flavorings. 
For example:
• 2/3 cup oatmeal
• 2/3 cup milk, dairy or alternative
• 1/2 cup fruit, fresh, frozen or canned work fine
• Sweetener, if desired, such as jam, brown sugar, honey, stevia, applesauce, etc
• Flavoring, if desired, such as vanilla, cinnamon, other spices
• Add ins, if desired, such as nuts, yogurt, chia seeds, protein powder, etc.
Measure all ingredients into a pint jar, cover with a tight lid and shake gently. Put the jar in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight. In the morning you have a quick nutritious breakfast for one or two. It can also be heated quickly in the microwave or a minute if you prefer a hot oatmeal sundae. Kids love to make their own.

Recipes from the Market: Lentils

On the menu this week? LENTILS! Commonly misunderstood but nutritious, delicious and cheap! Charlene made a salad and a soup that filled the market with flavorful smells, attracting clients to try the delightful dishes and learn more about how to prepare them. Preprinted recipes were available to take, as were the ingredients needed to prepare these dishes. Just another way we are working to help improve client lives at Fishline! Thanks Charlene!
