Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk, or nondairy milk, such as soymilk or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup 1/2-inch pieces rhubarb, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons brown sugar, pure maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, or other nuts, toasted (see Tip) if desired

Preparation

  1. Combine milk, juice, oats, rhubarb, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and cook at a very gentle bubble, stirring frequently, until the oats and rhubarb are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in sweetener to taste. Top with nuts.

Tips & Notes

Tip: To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
