About This Dish

Flahavan's, a 230-year-old, family owned company, sent me samples of oatmeal and the recipe for this oatmeal-infused shake that's great for St. Patrick's Day — or any day you want the stick-to-your-ribs nutrition of oatmeal.

The company ensures its products are made in an environmentally friendly a way. The outer shells of the oats are removed, but they aren't thrown away; they're used to power the boiler that generates steam for the cooking process. Wind turbines and a mill stream generate electricity for the company's plants and the company is focused on waste and recycling too.
