Skillet Porridge

Skillet Porridge

There’s nothing better than a warm breakfast on a summer morning. This vegan oatmeal skillet is ideal to make on a relaxing Sunday when you have extra time to treat yourself to a hearty, healthy meal. The only tools you'll need for the job are The Pan, measuring cups/spoons, and something to stir with that won't scratch the nonstick layer of the pan.

Servings: 6-8

Total Time: 25 minutes. 10 minutes to prepare, 15 minutes to cook.

What you’ll need to make the dish: 

  • 3 cups whole milk, or substitute any nut milk
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans 
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 16 oz. fresh seasonal berries (such as strawberries, blueberries or blackberries) or dried cranberries 

How to prepare the dish:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the milk, 3 cups of water, oats, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small dry skillet, toast the pecans over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Divide the oatmeal evenly among bowls and top with a drizzle of honey, the toasted pecans, and fresh berries.
