Low Carb Hot Cereal

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Siobhan M

This is my variation of a recipe for TVP "Oatmeal" that I found on About.com. I've added a few things, and it contains a grand total of 10 net grams of carbohydrates, 12 grams of fiber. And it's really good stuff!

This was my first time using TVP, and I think it worked out pretty well! For some reason I didn't realize it said to use three packets of Splenda -- I only used one, and I can agree that it needed some more sweetness! I skipped the butter and cream, and I used a bit less than a cup of water instead of milk. I added cinnamon and some banana slices. It was an interesting change from oatmeal, but 1/2 cup makes a LOT -- half that amount would have been plenty for one person! Thanks for posting.
