Thursday Food of the Day – November 26, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – NUTMEG

With its signature smell and ability to boost flavor with just a sprinkle, nutmeg is a pantry essential for sweet and savory holiday dishes.

WHY NUTMEG?

This light brown seed adds sweetness and spice to cream-based sauces, baked goods, holiday drinks such as cider and eggnog — and even vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons oat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup slivered, blanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/3 cup expeller-pressed canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Toss together oats, flour and almonds in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup, oil, almond extract, nutmeg and salt. Add to the oat mixture, stirring well to coat.
  3. Spread mixture on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake, stirring occasionally to break up lumps, until deep golden brown, fragrant and just dry to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow granola to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
  4. Enjoy!
