4 cups water | preferrably filtered but don't stress
4 cups hearty vegetable broth
4 cups mixed beans | I always add majority navy beans I'm a fan!
2 cups steel cut oats
20 "don't worry you won't even notice them" Brussels sprouts | chopped finely
1 whole tear jerkin onion | sliced into skinny rings and halved
1/2 cup Canadian maple syrup
1 T vanilla extract
1 T coconut oil
sprinkle as much or as little cinnamon as you choose
Method of Love
Boil 4 cups of water on stove top. Once boiling, add the 2 cups of strength of steel oats, while turning the heat down a bit, and let cook for 7-12 minutes.
During those 7-12 minutes, sautee Brussels sprout shavings and onions in 1 T of coconut oil. Let these nutrient rich veggies soak up the heat until the 7-12 minute oat soaking is finished.
In a large pot or slow cooker (I prefer crockpot) add vegetable broth, beans, entire pot of steel cut oats, sauteed veggies, maple syrup, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Heat on low-medium heat for as long as you want.
Freeze, refrigerate or eat up buttercup.
OH! And the best part, the TOPPINGS! My fave is drizzle of maple syrup and a sprinkle of anti-inflammatory cinnamon.
