Strawberries & cream oatmeal

You know me and oatmeal. I love the stuff. It's delicious, satisfying, versatile, and completely guilt-free! I've loved it my whole life and I enjoy experimenting with new goodies to stuff in there. This time it's strawberries and cream oatmeal with fresh red berries, a hit of vanilla and a big dollop of cool Greek yogurt on top. Mmm! Such a great breakfast. Or lunch!

This recipe makes enough for two kids or one hungry grown-up.

Here's how I made it:

1 cup water
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dollop of plain Greek yogurt (regular or non-fat)

I brought the water up to a boil over high heat in a small saucepan. I added the oats, strawberries and vanilla and lowered the heat to medium, cooking for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. To serve, I poured the oatmeal into a bowl and topped it with the yogurt.
