Oatmeal with Berry Rhubarb Compote

Oatmeal with Berry Rhubarb Compote

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 10 strawberries, halved
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups whole milk
  • 2-4 tablespoons raw honey or other sweetener (adjust amount to your own taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • extra milk or cream for serving

In a stockpot, combine the rhubarb, strawberries, blueberries, water, sugar and half the cinnamon.  Simmer over medium low heat, just until the fruit becomes juicy and the rhubarb softens.  Strain to remove the excess liquid.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to low and cook until the oats have thickened, about 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently.

Spoon the oatmeal into bowls and top with the fruit compote.  Finish with a splash of milk and/or cream.
