Korean Tacos

Since I’ve completely failed to be in the same place as a Korean taco food truck I decided to take a shot at making my own Korean tacos.

Except for the beverages, this is actually a relatively healthy meal… it has a lot of veggies in it. If you want to lighten it up further you might choose something other than tortillas to hold your tacos, and use leaner proteins.


Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

It takes a little more care though, and takes longer to cook. Steel-cut Oats Rolled Oats Steel-cut oatmeal Rolled oats The recipe is a straightforward translation of pumpkin pie filling, skipping the fat because why ruin a healthy food with it? And also it’s just unnecessary. 1/4 cup steel-cut oats 1/4 cup pumpkin puree 1 cup 1% milk (or whatever kind you prefer) 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or brown sugar, or honey, or the sweetener of your choice) 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ginger (I omitted this because I ran out) pinch of salt Rice Cooker I’m down on rice cookers because it’s actually pretty easy to make rice. … If you cook it on the stove-top, put the ingredients together in a pot, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally so that it doesn’t burn on the bottom. … I was very happy with them, and will gladly make this again. 1/4 cup of oatmeal is usually right for one serving, but with the addition of 1/4 cup of pumpkin, this felt more like 1.5 or even 2 servings, so there’s some left over for later.
