In my personal scratch book of recipes, this Golden Oatmeal is called “Get Well Oatmeal” because it has all the components perfect to help my sick little ones or even myself to recover quickly and get a boost of energy for the day.
I feed my family Golden Oatmeal anytime someone is starting to come down with something. Does it definitely cure them? I certainly can’t say that, but I do believe that anything you can do to boost the immune system is a win! And you may be wondering if my kids will actually eat this… The answer is YES. It has an attractive golden color and the flavors are well balanced and sweet. I usually have to make a second batch.
Bring water and kosher salt to a boil in a medium sauce pan at high heat.
Add rolled oats and butter, Stir.
Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for three to four minutes.
Add turmeric, cinnamon and honey. Stir.
Continue to simmer until thickened, about five minutes more.
Serve hot. Thin with a little milk or cream if desired. For little ones, I thin by stirring in ice cubes.
