How to make it
- Cook oatmeal in 3 cups of water for about 7 to 10 minutes
- Remove from heat and pour into a glass or ceramic bowl
- Allow the mixture to cool until it is body temperature (about 15 to 20 minutes)
- When mixture is cool add two generous tablespoons of unpasteurized miso and stir until the miso is dissolved
- Cover the mixture and leave overnight or prepare in the morning and leave for at least 8 to 10 hours (Do Not add salt as that inhibits the enzymatic process)
- The enzymes in the miso with have nearly liquified the oatmeal during this time
- Now, pour this mixture into a blender and puree very well
- strain and serve hot or cold with ginger, cinnamon, five spice, vanilla or rum flavorings or your favorite flavors.
- NOTE: If you heat this mixture just heat to warm not hot so that the enzymes will not be destroyed. Serve it cold for the most nutrition. I serve this in a 6 ounce cup that I warm for only 40 seconds in the microwave. It can also be warmed in a hot water bath in a sake bottle.
- Mix a little left over coffee with this drink for a little morning buzz!zzzzz
- Great instead of coffee for those trying to kick it.
- The miso breaks down during the marinade process and leaves no taste whatsoever, so you have a nutritious drink full of protein and B vitamins as well as the vitamins from the oatmeal
- This is really a good drink for the very elderly who have a hard time eating or have digestion problems and children will love it.
- The enzymes from the miso assist digestion, it is rather like eating yoghurt.
- Unpasteurized miso can be obtained from various websites that carry Mitoku miso. Check the Mitoku website for stores that you can order from if you live far from whole food or natural food stores. I use their unpasteurized organic dark red "medicinal miso for this drink. (macrobiotic)
