Soak oats, groats, teff and quinoa in water with 1 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar over night. Make sure grains are covered in water. This starts the sprouting process.
In the morning, using a fine mess strainer, empty and rinse the soaked grains. You can also use a nut bag or cheese cloth bag.
Place grains in a pot and add 3 cups of fresh water. Bring to a boil.
Add your spices, vanilla extract, if using chopped prunes add those now.
Lower temperature to medium heat
Stir your oatmeal
Add Zen Basil seeds or chia seeds
Cover your oatmeal and turn off flame
Oatmeal should cook in about 20 minutes - you want it wet (but not runny) so when it’s time to add the ground flax oatmeal won’t be paste like.
