    I’ve enjoyed your products for many years. My cupboard is always stocked with 2 – 3 of my favorites. When I discovered “mighty tasty” at the market, I thought it would be nice to try something new.

    The “mighty tasty” was disappointing. It was so unpalatable that I had to discard it. I do not like to waste food. However, I suspect even my dog would not tolerate this — and he likes your other products as much as I do.

    How are other people reacting to “mighty tasty”? What do they do to make it at least palatable? Do you think the bag I got was rancid?

    I am not concerned about the money. I am only asking for ways to consume this “mighty tasty” instead of discarding it. I do not like to waste nutrition.

    Ideas?

      To enhance the flavor and texture of our Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal, many of our customers have chosen to add toppings such as fruit, honey, milk, or brown sugar. Some have even prepared it as a savory breakfast cereal by adding fresh herbs, sausage, tomatoes, etc. If you prefer not to eat it as a cereal, we also have a couple of muffin recipes you may be interested in.

    Hi! I just got a rice cooker, and I was wondering if anyone had experimented with how to cook Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal in a rice cooker?

      We have not tested the preparation of our Gluten Free Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal in a rice cooker. This cereal requires a short cook time as it will become more gelatinous the longer it cooks. With an understanding of this cereal, cooking it in a rice cooker may not produce a desirable end product.

        I disagree. When I travel, I bring a mini-rice cooker, and use it for the Mighty Tasty. I use 4:1 water to cereal, and in my small pot that’s 1/4 cup cereal and 1 cup water. It comes out perfect, but you have to listen for it to start boiling and make sure you stir it a few times. Once it starts to thicken up, I add dried fruit and turn the rice cooker off and let it sit for five minutes or so, then stir in sugar/molasses and/or milk.

    Just tried this cereal this morning. I enjoyed it! Reminded me a lot of cream of wheat–lots of versatility to switch up the flavor. However, I was disappointed when I cooked the cereal based on the instructions on the package. Since it didn’t say otherwise, I assumed it was a portion for 1! (nowhere did it say it made enough for 4 people, until I read that here!) Now I have a pot full of cereal left I could’ve saved for another meal. Trying to eat gluten free is expensive enough without wasting food! Will the cooked cereal reheat well if I save it?

      To store cooked hot cereals, we recommend letting them cool completely. Once the oats have cooled, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. You may reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop, adding additional liquid as needed.

    I am looking for something different in the warmer months. Could you prepare this cereal like you would a Bircher muesli? Soak overnight in the fridge and then add fruit and nuts and yoghurt just before you eat it? Or must this always be cooked?

      Hi Lyndal,
      You could soak this type of cereal overnight if you prefer, but the texture may be a bit different than if the cereal was prepared the traditional way. If you’re looking for suggestions, we have a great blog post on our website about overnight oats that can be found here.

    Yum! I just love this cereal! So much tastier than oatmeal. I add a little bit of Swerve and a bit of maple syrup to mine along with walnuts and sometimes fruit.

    Oh, I also add a bit of cashew or almond milk after it cooks. You cod sautee some diced apples and add cinnamon and walnuts or pecans to it as well.

    My bag of Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal doesn’t mention preparing via microwave. I will try it tomorrow. Maybe I purchased an “old” bag.
