Plantain “Oatmeal”

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Nut-Free, Grain-Free, Vegan (of course!)

Oatmeal is a very common breakfast to have for not only vegans but also for anyone who craves a sweet, warming breakfast. If you, like me, crave the deliciousness of oatmeal, but either cannot digest grains well, are looking to spice-up your average bowl of oats, or are just interested in a new breakfast, than this dish is for you!

  • One green plantain
  • 1/4 of a cup of full-fat coconut cream (if you only have coconut milk, you may sub the water with one cup of coconut milk; however, the consistency might be a smidgen runnier)
  • 2/3 of a cup of water
  • Cinnamon to taste (I used about 1/2 of a tsp.)
  • Berries, or any other fruit that you enjoy on your oatmeal
  • One tbsp. of maple syrup, or to taste

How to make:

  1. Peel the plantain, then slice it into fourths.
  2. Place the chopped plantains into a food processor, then blend until the plantain is shredded into “rice-like” pieces.
  3. Place the shredded plantain into a medium-sized pot over medium to medium-high heat with the coconut cream, cinnamon and water, then stir for about 5 minutes.
  4. Cover the plantain mixture for ten minutes. (stir occasionally)
  5. In the meantime, heat your desired amount of berries (or any other fruit or topping) until they are hot.
  6. Once the plantain mixture is done cooking, stir the heated berries into the mixture.
  7. Serve and top with maple syrup.
  8. Enjoy!
