This spiced pear baked oatmeal is a delicious meal prep friendly breakfast option that features fresh pears, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.
For this month’s recipe redux, I took a little different approach to the theme – good luck foods. Sauerkraut at New Years was commonly enjoyed by my family, minus myself , who couldn’t get over the smell of it cooking to actually give it a try… Ha! I know black eyed peas are another good luck food, but they are tough to flavor without bacon/ham/pork, which isn’t my thing as a vegetarian. Round foods are also considered good luck – so I thought, why not bake oatmeal in a skillet?! Can that count as round? In some cultures, it’s tradition to hide a trinket or coin in your pudding or cake as a sign of good luck for whoever receives it in their piece. Why not hide a little something in these oats for someone to find on New Years morning? (Warning your guests beforehand of course!) Plus, what better way to start off the new year on a healthy note than with this hearty vegan breakfast? Sounds like a great idea to me!
