Chai Oatmeal

Adapted from Health, October 2002

Rolled oats simmered in sweet, spice-infused milk make an exquisite breakfast cereal. Oat bran not only boosts the fiber, it also makes the oatmeal creamy and thick.

1 1/2 cups 2% or whole milk (Organic Valley Dairy)
1/4 teaspoon salt (Hain Sea Salt)
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (Frontier)
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric (Simply Organic)
2 teaspoons honey, plus more to taste (NOW Organic Maple Syrup* may be substituted)
1/8 teaspoon NOW Organic Vanilla Extract*
3/4 cup NOW Rolled Oats*
2 tablespoons NOW Oat Bran*

*NOW ingredients available at your local health food store

Combine the milk, salt, and spices in a small saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer 5 minutes, stirring constantly; add the honey, vanilla (if desired), oats, and bran (if desired), and stir until combined. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the oatmeal is thick and creamy. Serve hot with additional honey to taste.
