4cupsof rolled oats(not instant)
A pinch of salt
1/4cupof coarse brown sugar
9cupsof milk(use substitute if you wish)
1cupof fruit of your choice, sliced (bananas, strawberries, plums, etc)
1/2cupof sliced almonds or nut of your choice
1teaspoonof powdered cinnamon
Mix oatmeal, salt, half the sugar, cinnamon stick and milk in a heavy saucepan and let it rest for 5 mins.
Bring this mixture to a boil over medium heat. Start stirring to prevent it from sticking to the bottom.
When the milk has been absorbed and you obtain a soft porridge remove from the heat.
Serve in individual bowls, and garnish with the fruit and nuts, sprinkle with the remaining sugar and the cinnamon powder.
To make this according to the original Dominican recipe just skip the almonds and fruits. The original Dominican oatmeal is very simple (but with more sugar).Use soy or almond milk for a lactose intolerant-friendly and vegan version.
