Oatmeal With Cacao Nibs And Figs
Cacao nibs are unprocessed bits of the cacao pod. They are intensely flavored, not at all sweet, and give a wonderful depth and crunch to meals. Try blending them into smoothies, or use them to top a long-braised stew.
- 1½ cups Big Batch of Steel-Cut Oats (click here for recipe)
- 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
- 6 dried Turkish figs, 4 chopped, 2 sliced
- Almond milk, to taste
Combine cooked oats and ¼ cup water in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in cacao nibs and chopped figs and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until oats are warmed through, about 3 minutes. Thin to desired consistency with almond milk, and serve topped with sliced figs.
