Oats are a great way to start any day, but these Fermented Carrot Cake Oats by Mitra Shirmohammadi are just amazing. To set off the fermentation process you can add a bit of a starter medium such as raw apple cider vinegar, kefir, yogurt, or whey to your oats and cover them with warm water over the counter. The speed of fermentation will vary depending on the temperature — for example, they will ferment faster at warmer temperatures. As the oats start to ferment, the water will get absorbed, leaving you with oats that are soft and rather mushy in texture. You can either cook them or enjoy them raw mixed with almond milk, natural sweetener of choice, nuts, seeds, or other desired toppings.
