Introduction

This creamy coconut milk infused oatmeal is PERFECT. I felt like I could conquer the world after this breakfast. This creamy coconut milk infused oatmeal is PERFECT. I felt like I could conquer the world after this breakfast.
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1 1/2 c coconut milk
    1 1/2 c water
    sea salt to taste
    1/2 c rolled oats
    1/2 c steel-cut oats

Directions

Add milk, water, and salt to a pan. Add both kinds of oats. Bring to a boil and then simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until you have the porridge consistency you like.

The rolled oats will get creamy, while the steel-cut oats will have a luscious pop to them. Add more water if it gets too gloppy any time along the way. Spoon into a bowl.

Now the fun starts! Lean it savory instead of sweet by adding a sliced hard-boiled egg or a fried egg or a poached egg if you’re feeling fancy; chopped pickles, pickled chard stems, or pickled carrots; a sliced avocado; a dab or two of Sriracha hot sauce; salt (if needed) and pepper or, once again if you’re getting fancy, a sprinkling of cumin would be nice; sauté some garlic (1-2 cloves thinly sliced) in some olive oil, add a bunch of chopped Swiss chard or kale greens and continue sautéing until they wilt (add salt and pepper to them as well, as needed).

If you have leftover base porridge, store in an airtight container in the fridge and reheat with a little added water or milk the next day for more savory experimentation.

Serving Size: 3 bowls of porridge

    creamy coconut milk-infused oatmeal for breakfast sounds dreamy. turning it into a risotto with mushrooms and chives might well be culinary triumph, but when you're being sold 'breakfast' yet shown a picture of the undersea nightmare above, it's a little shocking. - 2/16/14

    Sorry, this recipe is not appealing whatsoever! The sodium count is way too high and adding runny eggs made me shiver. Yuck! - 2/18/14

    Love the idea of this recipe and it possible variations; it's either a breakfast... or a balanced meal for later in the day. Seems quick, versatile... and also economical.
    Would like to see a photo of it as plain oatmeal... side by side with the dish as it appears.
