I make oatmeal pretty often and enjoy it in a variety of forms. I have been known to stir in a bit of peanut butter and jelly or top it with nuts, raisins, cinnamon, and a splash of milk...always good, but it's always a treat to add another flavor combination to the rotation.I used what I had in the fridge to create this delicious new-to-me combination of coconut milk, pineapple, and muscovado sugar. Oh my, talk about delicious!! I hope you'll give it a try!
Oatmeal with Coconut Milk and Caramelized Pineapple - serves 1
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 T sugar
1/4 t salt
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup pineapple chunks
1 T muscovado sugar or brown sugar
Bring the water and coconut milk to a boil. Add 1 T sugar, salt, and oats. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until oats are cooked. Pour oat mixture into a small bowl. Rinse pan, if necessary, add pineapple chunks and muscovado sugar and sauté quickly over medium high heat until sugar melts and pineapple is warm. Pour over oatmeal. Add a splash of milk if desired.
Look who snuck in after the photo shoot to gobble up the warm oatmeal!
