Kitchen Vocabulary: ‘Cubing’ Cinnamon Apple Oats
Makes 1 serving
Total time: 15 minutes
Kitchen vocabulary word: Cubing
1 medium sized apple
⅓ cup of oats
⅔ cup of water
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ Tablespoon honey
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Medium sized bowl
Liquid measuring cup
Using the vegetable peeler, peel the medium sized apple completely. Remember to always peel away from yourself.
Now it is time to cube. To cube food means to cut into uniform box shapes with all sides equal. To begin, cut the four quarters of the apple off the core.
Next, take one of the quarters and slice it into ¼ inch wide slices.
Repeat until you have 12 ¼ inch wide sticks.
Next, slice sticks into four equal parts to make cubes.
After you have cubed the apple, measure ⅓ cup of oats in a measuring cup and place in a microwave safe bowl.
Measure ⅔ cup of water with liquid measuring cup. Add into oats and microwave oats for 2:30.
While the oats are in the microwave, add ½ teaspoon vanilla to the bowl of cubed apples.
Add ½ Tablespoon honey.
Add ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
** Grown-up ** Remove oats from the microwave. Kid chef, place cubed apples in the microwave for 5 minutes. Once the cubed apples are done, mix together with the oats.
Top with sliced almonds.
** GROWN-UP TIPS **
Always remove the bowls from the microwave yourself.
This is a serving size for one person. If you are feeding more people, multiply the recipe.
