Toasted Oatmeal with Double Mango and Toasted Walnuts
I suggest halving the recipe
3 cups old-fashioned oats, uncooked
½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts (I used pecans, yummy)
4 cups skim milk or fat-free soy milk (or home made oat milk!)
½ cup diced dried mango
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 large ripe fresh mango, diced (2 cups)
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread oats in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan. Toast oats and nuts on the stovetop until lightly toasted, shaking the pan often.
Combine milk, dried mango, salt, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan; bring just to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to low; add toasted oats. Simmer 5 to 8 minutes or until thickened, stirring only once or twice. Transfer to serving bowls; top with fresh mango and toasted nuts. Serve with additional milk, if desired.
*Dried strawberries or golden raisins may replace dried mango; 2 cups sliced strawberries may replace fresh mango.
