Overnight banana spinach oatmeal

10 minutes - 1 serving 1of1ov1b

I bet you all remember the scene in the movie Hook, when the lost boys are sitting in front of an invisible buffet. The boys are trying to make Peter understand that he needs to imagine there is food on the table. The moment when that little switch turns in his head, and he sees the feast, is one of my very favourites. A table covered with strange playdoh-like food, varying in colour, texture and shape. I've been wanting to re-create that buffet, to make something bizzare, yet eatable, and delicious.

This oatmeal is an attempt at doing just that, something that is very colourful, bizzare and beautiful. I like that can't identify what everything is right away - what is that green goo? Is it cake batter? Pesto (ew)? I like to challenge people's ideas about food, pasta doesn't need to be beige and neither does your oatmeal.

For those who worry about having spinach in oatmeal, know that you can't taste it in this. Also, why shouldn't you have greens in the morning? We all have these pre-conceived ideas of what morning meals should look like, or what they should include. Of course, I'm not re-inventing breakfasts with this recipe, it's still oatmeal. I like to think that i'm taking it a step further, in terms of what a morning meal can look like.

I'm one step closer to having my peter pan buffet! Now imagine a table full of dishes with this level of colour and texture! I'm in eatable play-doh food heaven.
