An exquisite breakfast that is unlike anything you have tasted before, the Pumpkin Steel Cut oats combines cooked and blended red pumpkin with steel-cut oats.

The recipe gets a flavourful boost from apples, a touch of nutmeg and a sprinkling of roasted sunflower seeds. The luscious texture of the pumpkin base, the mealy mouth-feel of the steel-cut oats, all accentuated by the crunch of the seeds make this a truly wonderful breakfast recipe!

Steel-cut oats is a fibre-rich , gluten-free whole grain that is much healthier than quick-cooking rolled oats.

While the oats helps reduce cholesterol , the red pumpkin further improves heart health with potassium and vitamin C . A low-calorie fruit with loads of fibre , apple aids in digestion.

You can prepare this recipe and store it in the fridge for at least two days, but remember to adjust the consistency with a little water before serving because it tends to dry up a little.
