Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Quick and tasty hot breakfast

When I was little my mom would cook rice porridge with pumpkin. She wanted to encourage eating healthy food.

Thinking about my childhood I decided to make oatmeal with pumpkin. I know some kids don’t like to eat cooked vegetables. Sometimes blending veggies into purée is a great idea to “hide” healthy ingredients into a dish. For this tasty recipe the kids don’t even notice the pumpkin in the oatmeal (at least smaller ones). You can sprinkle the oatmeal with extra cinnamon and nutmeg for a bit of spice.
