Wake up your morning oatmeal with a something a little special… Very Blueberry Jalapeno Compote! Don’t let the jalapeno scare you… the sweetness of the blueberries mixed with the subtle warmth of the jalapeno add a depth of flavor to your traditional bowl of oatmeal that is sure to become a morning ritual.
Here’s how I put mine together…
Ingredients (Serves 1)
½ Cup Organic GF Old Fashioned Oats
1 Cup Filtered water
Pinch of Salt
½ Cup Frozen Wild Blueberries
1-2 Tbs. Forever Herbs Blueberry Jalapeno Compote
Prepare oatmeal by combining oats, water and salt in a pan over medium heat. Briskly stir or whisk oatmeal to make a creamy consistency – just until boiling. Then stir occasionally for about 5 mins. Pour oatmeal in a serving bowl and let rest for 5 minutes.
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave frozen blueberries at 50% power for 1 minute 20 seconds. Add in Blueberry Jalapeno Compote – microwave on high for 15-20 seconds. Stir to combine.
Pour Very Blueberry Jalapeno Compote over Oatmeal and topping with your favorite toppings such as sliced almonds, brown sugar or maple syrup and almond milk.
What a great way to get a healthy dose of fiber and two servings of super foods, oats and blueberries, into the first meal of the day. This has become one of my favorites!
