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.


Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • 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.
