Author Notes: When you have a bite of green curry oatmeal, your mind will do a double take. It’s unexpected, but it works. The flavor of green curry is softened and swaddled by the flavor of the oats, like a fuzzy blanket. A generous sprinkling of toasted coconut and brown sugar really pulls it all together and sparks up the flavor.fiveandspice

Serves: 1

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon green curry paste (homemade or store-bought), plus more to taste
  • 2/3 cup water (or replace half the water with coconut milk, if desired)
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (you could use steel cut, but you'll have to adjust the cooking time)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon toasted, shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, or to taste
  1. In a small pot, heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat until it has melted, then stir in the curry paste and cook until it starts to sizzle, a minute or so.
  2. Add the water and bring to a boil. Stir in the oats and pinch of salt, turn the heat down to low and cook, stirring frequently, until thick, about 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon into a bowl and top generously with toasted coconut and brown sugar.
