This savory beetroot curry oatmeal with egg takes two minutes to cook in the microwave. It is a great way to serve more vegetables to your baby or toddler for breakfast. And the vibrant color is sure to spark your child’s interest!
I absolutely love oats because they are a blank canvas. They truly can take on any flavor. If you've only been enjoying them in sweet applications, oh you're missing out!
And if you find yourself in an oatmeal breakfast rut, I hope this recipe will inspire you to get creative and adventurous!
Oats - Rolled oats will work best for this but you can use quick-cooking. Here's how you can adjust the cooking time and the amount of liquid.
Egg - be sure to whisk it before mixing it in with other ingredients. You can leave it out if there's an allergy. Here are some more easy egg recipes for babies.
Full-fat coconut milk - make sure it's full fat, especially if your child is under 2 years of age.
Curry powder - Yes! you can introduce babies to herbs and spices from the start.
Spinach - You can use fresh or frozen.
Beets - this is a great way to repurpose beets. Cook a big batch and enjoy throughout the week in various ways. They freeze well too.
Walnuts - be sure to finely grind for younger babies and then move onto finely chopped.
Ricotta - goes SO well with beets. If looking for non-dairy option, try adding some no sugar added coconut yogurt.
Step by Step Instructions
Combine all the ingredients minus beets, walnuts, and ricotta.
