Oatmeal Brulee

Love Life and Lollipops- Oatmeal Brulee

Vegan breakfast is easy when oatmeal brulee is on the menu! Sunday morning rolled around and I just couldn't eat another bagel with tofu (though I probably could have;) the bagel love runs deep).  I wanted something different from the usual and remembered seeing a recipe in The Food Network Magazine about an oatmeal souffle.  While that sounded delicious, it also sounded a bit overwhelming for breakfast.  Then an idea sparked: Oatmeal Brulee!

Here's how I did it:

I cooked the oatmeal according to package directions, but swapped the water for a mix of coconut milk and oat milk.  Just before the oatmeal was done cooking, I added 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.  (At this step you could really add whatever you like in your oatmeal...I was torn between the cinnamon and blueberries).  Then I preheated the broiler.  I let the oatmeal finish cooking then spread it into a pyrex pan and sprinkled the top with turbinado raw sugar.  I stuck it under the broiler until it started to brown and voila! Oatmeal Brulee!
