I met Anita Goa at a bloggers brunch last December and the making of a video for her YouTube channel was discussed but we never got around to it. Until now! And I’m very excited to introduce you to this whimsically wonderful lady as she will be sharing a three part cooking series featuring yours truly over the next couple of weeks.
Anita is a yogi and fitness instructor who shares a (huge) range of yoga flows on her YouTube channel along with various yogi tips and tricks, fitness videos and her life philosophy. She has also made a few cooking videos sharing her favourite foods and especially juices so make sure you check some of her other videos out too. I love doing her ‘Stiff in the morning’ flows! You can find all Anita’s videos here.
Now to the food and the first episode in the series about one of my favourite easy to make fuss-free breakfasts; soaked or over night oats. It will litterally take you 3-5 minutes to whip this up before going to bed and it will be waiting for you in the fridge when you wake up – ready to be devoured!
I also added the recipe and instructions to my new topping addiction for this new autumn season and it is warm spiced plums. They are also very easy to make and if you don’t have time to fuss about the kitchen in the morning prepare them the night before and make a bigger batch so it lasts you a few days. The only difference will be that they’re cold instead of hot but they will still add that tart yet sweet and spicy flavour to your oats.
Enjoy the video and recipe, and please let me know if you’d like me to make more videos for you guys!
PORTIONS: 2 portions / TIME: 5 + 10 min
1 cup oats
1 1/4 cup almond milk (or other plant milk)
1 tsp vanilla powder, optional
1 tsp cinnamon, optional
1 tsp – 1 tbsp brown rice syrup, optional
5-10 plums, depending on their size
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 tsp (or more) freshly grated ginger or powdered ginger
1-2 tbsp brown rice syrup
A few drops frying oil (like coconut- or rapeseed oil)
Mix oats, vanilla and cinnamon in a bowl. Then add almond milk, mix and let set in the fridge over night or for at least half an hour.
Halve plums and place them in a bowl with spices, grated ginger and sweetener. Then mix it all up before heating up a pan with a couple of drops oil, coconut oil or rapeseed oil will work. Place plums cut side down in the pan and cook on medium heat until the juices are leaking out, roughly 5 minutes.
Place oatmeal in a bowl or if you make it in a jar as demonstrated in the video simply leave it in there, drizzle nut butter on top as well as plums and seeds/nuts/coconut chips.
Optional toppings: nut butter, nuts, seeds, coconut chips and if not making the plums you could add fruits, berries or dried fruit as well
