Love oatmeal but need an extra hit of protein in the morning? The secret ingredient in this genius recipe is eggs, which are cooked slowly with the oats to create a creamy, custardy (and protein-rich) wonder.



1 1/2 cups
1 cup
1 cup
quick oats
1 tbsp
Madras curry paste
1 tsp
canola oil
small onion, finely chopped
1 pint
cherry tomatoes
garlic clove, minced
1 tsp
grated ginger
1/4 tsp
1/8 tsp
1 cup
cilantro, (whole leaves)
red chili, thinly sliced


  • WHISK eggs with broth, water, oats and curry paste in a medium saucepan and set over medium-low. Cook, stirring often, until very creamy, about 15 min.
  • HEAT a medium non-stick frying pan over medium. Add oil, then onion, tomatoes, garlic, ginger, cumin seeds and salt. Cook until tomatoes soften, 5 to 8 min.
  • DIVIDE oatmeal among 4 bowls. Top with tomato mixture, cilantro and chili.
