Therese Moore introduced shoppers to her 3 Bear Oats artisan porridge at the January 14 and 28 Mill City Farmers Markets, and will be returning for the February 11 Market (10a-1p inside the Mill City Museum).
These steel cut porridges feature sweet and savory spins on a healthy, comforting classic. Therese has a flavor for every palate:
Little Bear’s Breakfast – Caramelized with honey & cinnamon dusted apples.
La Petite Canadienne – Bacon, cheese with a hint of pure maple syrup.
Orso Toscano – An earthy mushroom mix with savory flavors to mimic risotto.
Shangri-la– A kick of Turmeric-laced Tandoori spices & ginger.
Alpine Trek– Dark chocolate & banana chunks harkening back to mountain trail mix.
Organic ingredients come from local co-ops and producers, including spices, seasonings, maple syrup, mushrooms, honey, fruits and ancient grain granolas.
I took home a bowl of the Shangri-la. So good! And since Therese puts it together while you wait, you can request more or less spice, etc., to suit your taste.
For my next visit, I'll be getting the Alpine Trek with dark chocolate and banana chunks. Don't want to sit down for a meal while you're at the Market? No problem - Therese can but a lid on your newly created meal, and she also has pre-made bowls ready to go:
