So after too much ice-cream, wine, and a Sunday run I decided to skip out on mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and stuffing and instead make baked oatmeal with some of my favourite fall ingredients: pumpkin, cranberries and maple syrup.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal
2 C old fashioned oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1 C soy milk
1/2 block soft silken tofu drained
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1/4 C dried cranberries
3 Tbsp local maple syrup
1/2 C canned (or roasted or boiled) pumpkin
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In your favourite corningware combine oats, dried cranberries, cinnamon & allspice.
In your blender combine soy milk, pumpkin, drained tofu, vanilla, & maple syrup. Blend until well combined.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and combine thoroughly. Allow to bake for approximately 30 minutes uncovered.
