Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1½ Cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 Cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 Tablespoons date purée
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon ginger
  • ½ Teaspoon cloves
  • ¼ Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 Cups skim milk
  • 2½ Cups warm water
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅛ Teaspoon salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat in an oven-proof, lidded pan. Stir in the oats and fry them, stirring frequently until they smell toasted.

Push the oats to the side and add in the remaining oil. Add in the pumpkin. Fry it in the oil, only stirring after about a minute. Stir in the date purée, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, and continue frying the purée until the color darkens slightly and the raw smell disappears.

Pour in the milk and whisk everything to combine. Whisk in the water, vanilla, and salt. Put the lid on the pan and place it in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes.

Stir and allow the oatmeal to sit for a few minutes to thicken and cool before serving.

Pumpkin Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Pumpkin Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
