It is that time of the year when we are all thinking warm cozy foods. One of my favorite morning dishes is oatmeal using quick cooking oatmeal and TVP which is 100% defatted soy flour turned into soy protein granules.
- I put 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a microwave safe dish
- Add 1/4 cup dry TVP
- Add about 1 1/4 cups soy milk
- Microwave for 3 minutes.
Serve with a splash of soy milk and berries, nuts or seeds.
When I eat this power-packed breakfast, I am not hungry until lunch. Protein keeps you full longer (1/2 cup oatmeal + 1/4 cup TVP = 17g of protein!). Bonus benefits: no cholesterol or saturated fats!
Start your morning with this hearty and satisfying oatmeal.
