As one of those people who eat oatmeal 3 or 4 times a week, I am always looking for was to make my daily bowl more interesting. This recent invention was quite wonderful and sophisticated in flavor. Not a kid dish as the ginger adds a bit of spice, use more or less if you are inclined.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring water to boil in a small saucepan; add oatmeal and cook 1 minute (if you want you can use the peach juice as part of your 2 cups of liquid).
  2. Add finely chopped ginger to the pot (be sure to cut small as it swells quite a bit); continue to cook another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add peaches and cook oatmeal until desired doneness, about 2-4 minutes depending on your grain and eating preferences.
  4. Serve topped with sweetener, milk, yogurt or cream, again according to your tastes.

Wonderful and sophisticated is the perfect description! The ginger flavor is quite strong, which I loved, but I imagine most people would want to use less. I cut the peach segments in thirds so they would be bite-sized. I cooked the oatmeal in the juice and that made it sweet enough without adding sugar. Thanks to Toni for sharing your creation!

Yes, this is a nice way to spice up your usual oatmeal! I used about a tsp of the crystallized ginger, and it still permeated the dish fully. I also used a couple of fresh nectarines on top. Nuts would probably go really well with this too. Thanks, Toni!
