Oatchata from OATrageous Oatmeals by Kathy Hester

Oat-chata from OATrageous Oatmeals

Horchata is a traditional Mexican beverage made with homemade rice milk, cinnamon and sweeteners. I’ve taken liberties with it here by adding in oats and almonds. It’s amazing served over ice.


Southwest Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash by Low Fat Vegan Chef

Serve this delicious hash for breakfast or make it for dinner if you want to and serve it with corn tortillas, or roll into a burrito.


Tri-color Quinoa and Greens Taco Filling

This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco night!


Mushroom Sun-dried Tomato Oat Risotto

Savory oats are my latest obsession. These steel cut oats retain an al dente quality to them just like arborio rice does in a risotto. Recipe by Geekypoet.

Jalapeño Cranberry Papaya Couscous

Sweet, spicy, and a little bit sour, with no added fat. Tastes scrumptious hot or cold. We prefer to eat it cold over a bed of baby spinach or steamed kale. Skip the optional tofu or tempeh, and you’ve made the dish soy free!–JoniCeline

Green Cabbage Soup

I think shaking up some sweet salsa in a squeeze bottle and drawing a heart outline on each soup’s bowl’s surface, with the cilanto dusting would make it a great Valentine’s dish.
