I happened to stubble upon Veronique’s page while perusing the Vogue website late at night. I was immediately stunned by her clothing designs and her way of using vibrant patterns, while incorporating comfort. Her designs give off a sense of effortlessness, but are trendy and chic. Pairing denim designs along with hanging tassels that are enveloped with tawny colored beads are definitely hitting the street styles. Veronique is Belgium born and raised. By 1978 she was already presenting her fashion designs to the world. Her most recent Resort Collection, inspired me to create a dish that brings comfort to the senses and a hint of surprise.

So, today I present a breakfast dish that will be great for those summer days…

Chilled Oatmeal

topped with walnuts

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup of rolled oats

1 banana

2 pitted dates

2-4 cups of cold water (add more if needed)

1 tsp. of ground ginger

1 tsp. of agave

Toppings

handful of walnuts

1 sprig of mint (optional)

1 tsp. of nutmeg

Extra

raisins

cinnamon

maple syrup

(Anything that you enjoy on top of oatmeal dishes)

A high power food processor

bowl or glass pitcher covered (to store oatmeal)

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, process rolled oats and water till it forms a liquid consistency.
  2. Next, add banana, dates, ginger, and agave. Mix on high till completely blended together.
  3. Once blended, pour the mixture into a bowl or glass pitcher. Then cover with plastic wrap to store in the fridge till the next morning.
  4. Next morning, add your toppings and enjoy while sitting outside on your porch. (I like to imagine that I’m sitting on a porch somewhere, while birds chirp in the background.)

Enjoy!!!
