We interrupt this Vegan Mofo sandwich theme for a very special announcement — pumpkin time has arrived!! I think my friend Stephanie of Swell Baked Goods said it best with this Facebook pic:
Yea, yea, I know people have been eating pumpkin all month, and it's nearly over. But I cooked my first pumpkin dish of the season this week — Pumpkin Oats from the 2012 Happy Herbivore Wall Calendar:
These creamy oats are amazing. There's, of course, pumpkin, as well as plump raisins (I use the pre-moistened baking raisins because they're awesome!), pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup.
The one thing I will change when I make this again in the morning is I'll add more maple syrup. The recipe only calls for one tablespoon, but this bowl could have been a tad sweeter. I'm not a huge sugar fan in the morning, but if I'm trying to eat something sweet, well, I want it to be all the way sweet.
I can't find the recipe on Happy Herbivore's site, but I did see that someone else had posted it. It's simple and delicious.
