This oatmeal soothes you with the taste of sweet pears and the fragrances of
rosewater and cardamom. It’s the perfect oatmeal to pamper yourself with before
a big day or after a really hard week.
1/2 cup (40 g) steel-cut oats
2 cups (475 ml) unsweetened coconut milk (such as So Delicious brand)
1 small pear, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon rosewater, food-grade
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Sweetener of your choice, to taste (I use 1/4 teaspoon stevia.)
The night before: Spray your crock with oil to help with cleanup later or skip it*
and just plan on soaking your crock immediately afterwards so any stuck-on
oatmeal will come right off. Add all the ingredients except the sweetener. Cook
on low overnight (7 to 9 hours).
In the morning: Stir your oatmeal well and add sweetener. It may seem watery
at the top, but when stirred, it should attain a more uniform consistency.
