Middle Eastern Tahini Oatmeal (Vegan)

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by the80srule

I concocted this to have a more interesting way to eat oatmeal. Usually I have it with just fruit preserves or with some spice, but I'm trying to eat healthier, so may as well make it tasty. This is open for variation, but what's posted is how I like it.

This is a very nice oatmeal. I used vanilla almond milk and increased the cinnamon and cardamom. Also I barely could taste the tahini - maybe it's my tahini? I actually increased the amount of tahini to 1 1/2 tablespoons to have real taste of it. With this changes I'll definitely make it again because I love tahini :) Thanks for sharing!

  1. Mix the oats with the soymilk, tahini, and spices together in a microwave-safe bowl.
