Chai Infused Steel Cut Oats

Chai Infused Steel Cut Oats

Several weeks ago, a good friend of mine traveled to Australia for work and gifted me a box of Aussie Chai tea as a souvenir. The tea tasted great with some soy milk but I have a habit of drinking only straight green tea in the mornings so I wanted to incorporate the Chai tea into my breakfast instead. The Chai gave the steel cut oats a mild spicy flavor and pairs really well with some sprinkled cinnamon, blueberries and apple slices.

Chai Infused Steel Cut Oats ( adapted from Alton Brown’s Steel Cut Oatmeal Recipe )

1/2 tablespoon butter
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups of brewed Chai tea
1 cup of boiling water
1 cup of vanilla soy milk
pinch of salt
cinnamon, fruits and nuts for the toppings
 

In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the steel cut oats. Stir for a few minutes to toast the oats. Add the 2 cups of chai tea and 1 cup of boiling water. Add a pinch of salt. Cover, reduce heat and simmer on low for about 25-30 minutes.

Add 1 cup of vanilla soy milk and stir gently. Simmer on low for another 10 minutes. Spoon the oats into a bowl and add 1/4 cup of soy milk. Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar ( if desired ) on top.  Top with fruits and or nuts.

Crepes

First time attempting to make crepes. I found it challenging to keep the crepe thin while not having it break apart on me.
