PCRM Staff Favorite: Fig and Spice Raw Oatmeal

PCRM Staff Favorite: Fig and Spice Raw Oatmeal

Makes 30 servings

Equipment

  • Food processor (it will be helpful to use a large-capacity food processor if you’re serving a large crowd)
  • Medium to large fine mesh strainer
  • Extra-large bowl for soaking the steel cut oats
  • Medium to large bowl for soaking the figs
  • Measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients

  • 45 medium Calimyrna (Turkish) figs, dried, soaked in water
  • 9 cups steel cut oats, soaked in filtered water
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Nutmeg, to taste
  • Allspice, to taste

Advance Preparation

  • Place oats in a very large bowl with enough filtered water to cover by a couple of inches. Soak overnight. The oats will soak up a lot of water to use a large bowl and put in as much water as possible.
  • Place figs in a bowl with enough filtered water to just cover. Soak overnight.
  • Secure a large colander and large food processor (ideally a 14-cup capacity)

Final Preparation

  • Rinse and drain oats. Add half the quantity of oats to a 14-cup capacity food processor.
  • Reserving the fig soak water, add half the quantity of figs.
  • Add approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 3/4 teaspoon allspice, to taste.
  • Add between 2 1/4 cups and 4 1/2 cups of the fig soak water and blend. Add fig soak water gradually until desired consistency is reached.
  • Repeat with remaining ingredients.
