Take your typical morning oats on a Persian holiday with cardamom, pomegranate, pistachio and a touch of honey. It makes apples and cinnamon sound positively boring!

(Makes one bowl)



1. Lightly toast the pistachios in a dry skillet until fragrant and set aside.

2. This is one of those times when it actually tastes better in a pressure cooker because the cardamom and cinnamon have more of a chance to open up but cook this recipe however you'd like. In a pressure cooker combine the oats, water, cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and salt. Add a few dashes of cardamom bitters from The Bitter Housewife. Pressure cook on high for 2 minutes and let come to pressure for 8 minutes (the longer it sits the more creamy it gets). On Stovetop bring water to a boil, reduce to a simmer and gently fold in the oats and seasonings stirring constantly for 3 minutes, take off the heat and let rest for 5 minutes.

4. Discard the cardamom pods and cinnamon stick and pour into a bowl.

5. Add the toasted pistachios, pomegranate seeds and sprinkle with cinnamon.

6. Drizzle all over with the honey and serve.

In the Basque region of France they don't soak their signature Tolosa beans, they slowly braise them with just water, salt and olive oil. Time and heat to transform even the dense beans from dry to creamy masterpieces. This method works just as well for all heirloom beans! Read more about my bean braising experiments...
