Sachlav Oatmeal

Sachlav Oatmeal

Sachlav is a popular Middle Eastern/Israeli hot drink that is thick and flavored with rose water or orange blossom and cinnamon.  It is typically served with toppings of nuts and raising and coconut as desired, get my recipe for Sachlav here. 

I took that flavor profile and added to my breakfast oatmeal and it is delicious. Usually Sachlav is made with a special thickener and milk, with the oatmeal you don't need the thickener so it is easier to make anywhere.
