I have cooked this product 2 times - the second time longer than the first & still was quite chewy but very good flavor. I liked it anyway, in soups & with sweet & sour pork buttons. Next time I will try soaking it overnight to make it a bit softer.
We've been eating this for a long time now, can't say enough good about it. Tastes great, good for you, how can you go wrong? I can share a few tips...it's great done half and half with brown rice and freezes in cooked form very well. Sometimes I mix it in three parts, Cavena, B.Rice and Quinoa. With wild rice is good too. Stir fried in olive oil, added to soup, top a salad. The uses are endless. I have it batch cooked and ready in my freezer.
I like this product! It is wonderful to have Canadian produced product such as this. I used it in a curry dish and I really liked it and knowing I'm eating something good for me was an added bonus!
I soaked it overnight and cooked it well before I put it in the curry dish and it was a really nice texture. I think that is the secret for me with the texture, it needs to be well soaked and cooked!
I soaked it for about 4 hours, simmered on super-low until boiled for over 2 hours (at the water ratio given on the label: 1:3.5). It came out okay. Had to drain a tiny little bit of liquid but otherwise the texture resembles brown rice. Wonderful alternative for someone in our household with special diat needs!!! I would give this a 5 star but I cannot seem to click on the stars.
Love this product! You can use it in so many ways; by itself, add veggies or other ingredients, serve soup or stew over the top... And as an extra bonus, they are even healthier than quinoa. It's extremely tasty; with a nutty flavor, and a satisfying al dente texture.
I am really enjoying this product. These oats are very easy to make and really tasty. I also enjoy the chewiness of them.
love ,love ,love this....nutty and chewy and yummy...for breakfast with fruit and yogurt , used in stirfrys or just by itself like regular rice.
Good product. For those who find that the texture is a bit tough for them, consider cooking the oats in a small slow cooker. I usually use mine with a lamp/appliance timer. I soak the oats overnight in about two parts water (I know that doesn't seem like much water but trust me they come out just fine) and l set the timer to start about two and a half hours before I'm ready to eat the next morning. That's two hours of cooking plus a half hour of cool down time. I eat the oats with a couple tablespoons of nutritional yeast mixed in about a cup of almond milk as well as some blueberries and stevia. This makes for a delicious high protein breakfast that will also help your blood glucose levels to stay stable.
Sorry folks am I missing something here? I followed the directions and boiled for forty minutes the water evaporated far too fast and the cavena was hard. Nutty flavor, yes but the texture is something to be desired. Honestly I felt like a cow chewing her cud...I was so disappointed I looked up more info. In a blog someone stated that they soaked their cavena for 24hrs and then proceeded to cook as per the instructions. She said it was much better that way. I don't think I will try this product again, thank goodness it was a free sample from well.ca.
Great product--I cook a small batch up at a time and add it to my soups that I take for my lunch. It keeps well in the fridge.
I love this product. Very nutritious with a nutty flavor. I have introduced other people to this product and they are also enthusiastic about these oats. Great for low carb diets and diabetics. I give it a 5/5
I much prefer the texture of this product to brown rice, besides it having more fibre, protein and potassium. I enjoy its slightly sweet and nutty flavour that is also subtler than that of brown rice. I appreciate that Well.ca has free shipping and that I can buy a larger container at a better price than I can find locally.
I find this an excellent product,use it for breakfast and for main meals,tasty and easy to use.
This is a great alternative to brown rice. It has a nice nutty flavor. My kids loved it and it's easy to prepare. I love that it's from the prairies also :)
I love these and make up a big pot to use as a breakfast cereal with walnuts, rasins, blackstrap molasses and almond milk and for a great dinner salad to go with salmon adding almonds and dried cranberries with some butter. My daughter hates the consistency of oatmeal but loves this for breakfast too. Very yummy and so many possibilities for meals. Also a quick lunch with cucumber, grated carrot, celery, throw in a can of tuna or some chicken and you're ready.
I love using these to make a type of Greek salad. I cook it up, let it cool then add tomatoes, cucumber, green and red pepper, green onions, and feta cheese - all topped with my home-made Greek dressing. My husband who won't eat rice loves this!
Cavena Nuda is awesome! It looks like brown rice, but it's an oat. It has a wonderful nutty flavour that combines with savoury and sweet dishes. It is good hot or cold. I even love it for breakfast, with some milk and fruit stirred in. It is great for diabetics, and is also gluten-free. Yes, it's pricey, but it's very filling so you don't need to eat a lot to feel satisfied. HIghly recommended!
Love the fact you can use this as you would use rice. I also made a mixture of Cavena Nuda Oats, wild rice,onion and mushrooms with a touch of soya sauce and it was very tasty. Great as a main course or as a sweeter dessert as well. Fast service and free shipping was a real bonus!!!
We tried the Cavena Nuda Oats and found them to be everything that you claimed they would be - only more. We will frequently use them as a substitute for rice.
Great product. I love the chewy satisfying texture. It is completely vesatile - breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks. It goes with sweet & savory. Its uses are limited only by imagination!
Great service & no shipping :)
Fabulous product! I sauteed shallots, sundried tomatoes and mushroons and added to Cavenua. Great taste and so good for you.
Great Product. Can be used in so many ways. Makes a great salad! Love this!!
It goes pretty well with other food. Good for people who are bored with rice/noodle sometimes. Chewy texture.
Love this product. Hard to find in grocery stores so glad I was able to find it on-line. Tastes great as a salad but I particularly like toasting it in a frying pan and adding my favourite spices.
it is a great product; just cook it a little longer and leave on stove top after cooking, this way it absorbs more liquid. I have used it with regular rice to make fried rice and in soups: delicious! My friends are going to order some; I have given them two cups of it already. I appreciate very much that there was no delivery charge for it - good service- thanks
