When I worked at the food co-op, I was constantly thinking of new ways to prepare fresh produce in a way that would be kid approved. I often would “hide” veggies in a recipe by pureeing them in the sauce. For example, there’s a simple way to make veggie macaroni and cheese that would leave your own kids none the wiser. I’ll share that recipe soon :)

So this morning when I was making my gluten free steel cut oats, I thought about all my Surprise! recipes, and decided to add a little to my own.

Strawberry Surprise Gluten Free Oats

strawberry oats

These are SUPER simple to make. I only make one serving of oats at a time, so the measurements are relative. Boil 1/2 cup water. When the water comes to a boil, add 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free steel cut oats and two strawberries sliced into small bits. The boiling process will puff up the strawberries. Stir occasionally, until all the water is evaporated and the strawberries have melded.

I serve my oats on a pillow of Oikos 0%fat vanilla yogurt. Tasty!

Another Surprise!!!
