I don’t like getting hungry when I’m not at home as it is a bit difficult to get food around. I am in a city where veganism isn’t mainstream yet plus people have this distorted view of what healthy really means. Though I don’t consider myself the paragon of ‘healthiness’, I always choose the healthiest available food. But I digress!
My personal favourite is overnight oats. It is so easy to make- no heating or cooking involved. Just a lot of soaking, and the toppings are endless. The best thing about this is that it keeps in the fridge for days.
Overnight Oats with Strawberry Compote
1 cup organic traditional rolled oats
1 cup organic soymylk (or any mylk of your choice like almond, coconut, hazelnut, etc)
2 tbsps organic raw dark agave nectar (can be subsituted with maple syrup)
4 pieces frozen strawberries (or 1/2 cup frozen raspberries)
2 tbsps water
1 tsbp organic raw dark agave nectar
Stir the first three ingredients in a bowl. Transfer to a container, cover and let soak in the fridge overnight.
For the compote, mix all ingredients of the strawberry compote in a pot and simmer in low heat until the water has evaporated and the mixture has caramelised.
Let strawberry compote cool down a little bit. You can either mix the two together or use the compote as a topping. It’s delicious either way.
Serve in a glass jar and top with banana slices, dried fruits, seeds or nuts. Best serve cold.
Will keep in the fridge for 3 days.
