Traditional Breakfast Recipe from an Israeli Kibbutz
You will love visiting Kibbutz Neot Semadar best known for its array of organic products.
Over 90 adult members (families and singles), 70 children of various ages, and 50 volunteers of all ages from Israel and from abroad stay in this Kibbutz. The community life is definitely the most important highlight of the kibbutz experience.
Breakfast in Neot Semadar is eaten in silence. Often it’s a large bowl of hot oatmeal served with chopped dates – which, by the way, we included in the last Israel Pack shipment. There are so many ways to use dates, but we wanted to share our favorite way to use this product, inspired by this cozy, hearty breakfast in the desert.
|Recipe for oatmeal with dates (2 servings):|
– warm 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a small pot
– add one cup of whole or steel cut oats
– sauté oats in the pot for 1 min
– add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup almond milk, so that oats appear soaked
– mix-in 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen berries
– add pinch of salt, teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 chopped dates
– bring mixture to a boil and then reduce heat to low
– simmer uncovered for 3-5 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally
– remove from heat and let oats cool slightly
