Curry Cashew Savory Granola & OATrageous Oatmeals Book Review+Giveaway

Curry Cashew Granola

Kathy is at it again with her new book OATrageous Oatmeals: Delicious & Surprising Plant-Based Dishes From This Humble, Heart-Healthy Grain. Yes, a Whole book on Oats! You will be surprised at all the various ways in which you can use Oats. This book takes you through snacks, breakfast, meals, soups, desserts and more. There is so much more to Oats than just Oatmeals.

Kathy Hester is a prolific and Best Selling Cookbook author of several Vegan Books including the Vegan slow cooker, the Great Vegan Bean and more. If you know her earlier cookbooks, you know that she puts the best in each one of them. This book is no exception. This book chapters include 

Do It Yourself Homemade Staples
Warming Oats for Fall and Winter (Breakfast dishes)
Cooling Breakfast Oats for Spring and Summer
Granolas and Bars for Breakfast and Beyond
Satisfying Soups and Stews
Savory Oats for Lunch and Dinner
Delightful Desserts
Drinks, Oat Milk and Even an Oat Liquor
Beyond the Dining Room: Other uses for Oats (Pet treats and personal care items) – This is the cutest chapter for obvious reasons :)

I tried the Indian spiced tomato Soup which uses oats as thickener. I was wondering about what was going to happen to the texture of the soup while the Oats were cooking in it. Surprisingly, after blending it all, everything fit perfectly. No sticky Oat texture, just delicious creamy Soup!

Stir-fried Veggie Oats

I also made the Stir-fried Veggie Oats which are basically Fried rice but with Oats! I used rolled Oats so the mixture stayed more like Rice. With all of the veggies, scrambled up tofu, sauce and spices, this was a fantastic side. A good drizzle of Sriracha and you can eat it as a meal. 

The Curry Cashew Granola, Sundried Tomato and Kalamata Olive Granola and other Savory granola options from the book are going to blow you away. I am a sucker for savory snacks and breakfasts. I will eat a bowl full of savory granola anyday over pancakes :) 

There are many recipes that are on my to try list like the Oat-chata, Oats-bury Steaks, ,oat creamers, Oat milk Yogurt, Cinnamon roll Oatmeal, Veggie Oat Taco Mince, Oat Sausagy crumbles! Blackberry Mojito Overnight Oats, Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Oatmeal and so many more. 

A copy of the book is being given away by the publishers. Please enter the Giveaway at the bottom of the post.
