BananOats

So. last week was raspberry flavored iced tea. That used up one cup. It’s a gallon jug. What to do? How’s about we doctor it up a bit? Let’s add some flavor, so it’s not so Middle-America tasting, maybe by moving from Middle America to Central America. MJ had some bananas, for her morning phosgene or something, so I snitched one of them and sliced it up into the iced tea. Instead of potatoes (whoever heard of potatoes in iced tea anyway?), we’ll thicken it a little with mochi flour. Keep in mind that mochi flour clumps like regular flour, and as far as I know, there’s no mochi equivalent of Wondra, so you have to paste it up in cold water in a saucer, then add a little of the hot tea and then stir it all back into the pot.

Setup: 1/3 cup of stone ground rolled oats, two dinner teaspoons of mochi flour, one cup of raspberry-flavored iced tea, one overripe banana, sliced.  Cook for 10 minutes or so, depending on the exact style of oats.  Add the banana before you add the oats. The mochi goes in a couple minutes before you take it off the stove.

Results: Very good. The bananas cooked down almost enough to be their own thickener. The fruit/berry flavors heterodyned nicely. Keep in mind, however, that you’ve just doubled the size of your breakfast.
