/ 4 / 8 / 3 Y i e l d s 2 s e r v i n g s 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 2 Tbsp. chia seeds 1 /4 tsp. ground cardamom 1 /8 tsp. salt 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk, lukewarm 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup 1 cup pomegranate seeds 1 Fuyu persimmon, seeded and sliced 1 /3 cup shelled pistachios, roughly chopped Overnight Oats With Cardamom and Pistachios Yields 2 servings Combine oats, chia seeds, cardamom and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the milk and maple syrup well, until syrup dissolves (the lukewarm temperature will help). Pour the liquid over the oat mixture and stir well. Arrange one quarter of the pomegranate seeds, persimmon slices and pistachios at the bottom of each of two containers. Top each with one quarter of the mixture. Repeat until the jars are full. Cover and refrigerate overnight. u Vegan & Versatile taste by Marina Kay COURTESY VICKY COHEN lthough they're quick and easy, oats are hardly boring! Take it from sisters Vicky Cohen and Ruth Fox, whose Middle Eastern-inspired recipe for overnight oats with cardamom and pistachios appears in their vegan cookbook Tahini and Turmeric (Da Capo Press, 2018). Refl ecting on childhood memories of their dad peeling pomegranates and their mom topping her oatmeal dinner with those ruby red seeds, the authors have spiced up this traditional breakfast dish, adding extra crunch, color, and sweet and savory fl avors with pistachios, cardamom and a dash of pure maple syrup (which can be switched with honey, but then the dish won't be vegan). Persimmons abound in fall, and you can replace them with fi gs or stone fruits in summer, and pears in winter. The authors suggest spas serve the tasty treat in small mason jars or clear glasses with spoons, and dicing—rather than slicing— the persimmons to fi t. "You can off er extra honey, maple syrup or agave on the side if guests want to add sweetness," they note. "To save time, the oat mixture can be prepared separately the night before, and the cups assembled just prior to serving or as needed." Finally, you can top the treat with edible fl owers for a beautiful presentation. [ 34 ] • # dayspamagazine • september 2018
