Nugget Quick & Easy Recipe

Hearty oats are a perfect start to the day. This recipe twists tradition with a sweet and tangy balsamic-honey reduction in lieu of the oft-favored brown sugar. If you find yourself with extra Balsamic Fig Reduction, save and drizzle over grilled lamb chops or your favorite vanilla bean ice cream!



Whisk oats into 4 cups of rapidly boiling water; add salt and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 30 minutes, stirring occassionally.

Meanwhile, in a small pot over medium-low heat, combine balsamic vinegar, honey and figs. Reduce until liquid has reached about 1 cup (⅔ the original volume). Remove from heat and let cool.

Drizzle over finished oatmeal.
