'Tis pumpkin season and I love it... looove it. Can't get enough of it. Canned pumpkin swirled into the hot cereal along with some spices.. maple for a bit of sweetness.. a touch of cream and Voila.. the perfect fall breakfast for those chilly mornings. The pumpkin makes it substantial and delicious.
And beyond delicious, it is one of those foods that is rich with nutritious benefits, loaded with anti-oxidants & beta-caroten.. you can tell this by it's colour. This is an easy and delicious way to introduce more into your diet in minutes.
Pumpkin Hot Wheat Cereal
Make Farina/Hot Wheat Cereal (2 portion) according to package directions adding in 1/3 c. water more than stated. Malt-o-meal, Cream of Wheat.. or Trader Joe's Hot Wheat Cereal is what I prefer. No worries about GMO's there.
After cereal is almost done... stir in 3/4 to 1 cup of canned pumpkin.
Cook til warmed.
Add a good sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice and 1 T. maple syrup. If cereal is thicker than you like, add some hot water to thin to desired consistency.
Serve warm with a touch of milk or cream. (We used coconut milk and YUM!)
