Harvest Morning Oatmeal

 I love that Fall is here! It's time to change up our morning oatmeal from fresh berries and peaches, to something with a little bit more crunch! How about pomegranate seeds???


We cook Steel Cut Oats at least 3 times a week around here, and while they are cooking we always add a little cinnamon... feeling like a little more Fall-ish flavors?? Add a dash of Nutmeg and top with Pomegranate Seeds. Don't be afraid of Pomegranates, they are so easy to prepare (see "Tip" below), I usually do 4-5 at a time in a cool bowl of water in the kitchen sink and then store them in a Ziplock bag, which makes them a perfect topping for this Harvest Morning Oatmeal! Enjoy!

Quick Tip to De-Seed your Pomegranates: Fill up a large bowl in your sink with cool water. Take your pomegranate and slice it in half with a sharp knife. Submerge one half of the pomegranate in the water and peel back the skin like you are turning it inside out. All the seeds will pop out and because it's under water there will be no spraying or staining of your clothes! Plus, all the seeds will sink to the bottom and all the excess stuff from the inside of the pomegranate will float to the top. Then you can skim off the top of the bowl with you hand and strain the seeds out for eating. I usually do a bunch at a time and store them in a ziplock bag in the fridge to snack on!

Do you have extra Pomegranates, try this delicious salad, one of my favorites for sure!!!

Good idea, as usual! I've been thinking about adding apples but thought it might be a little too crunchy. Thanks for the tip about de-seed pomegranates.

Thank you for the tip on getting the seeds out! I just got a few pomegranates in my produce box this week and I'm going to use your method to get those seeds out!

I concur, thanks for the seed extraction tip. My parents have a tree, so I have access to as many as I'd like but I rarely partake because of the mess. Thanks!

I've been eating more oatmeal to increase my servings of whole grains each day. The texture of pomegranate seeds with oatmeal sounds appealing. I appreciate your tips on how to extract the seeds --- I always found that difficult when I've used pomegrante in the past.
