How would you like a glowing high-protein and low-fat porridge for breakfast? Keep reading, and we'll show you how to make this "golden" turmeric oatmeal with sugar-free homemade poached plums.

Turmeric is such a cute little thing. It's a great source of precious vitamins and minerals, it makes your food glow like gold, and regular consumption can help against inflammation and depression[1].

Turmeric is pretty alright, but it doesn't make a complete breakfast. To start your day like a champ, you need fibres, carbs, and proteins. Oats take care of the first two, and we filled this recipe with lots of protein-rich ingredients, like:

  • Soy milk

  • Soy yogurt

  • Pumpkin Seeds

  • Almond spread

All the ingredients we used are plant-based, making this golden oatmeal perfect for vegans. And just like any other oatmeal, it's also gluten-free.

Moreover, we didn't use any added sugars. Instead, we took some ripe plums and poached them in water with a bit of cinnamon.

Ok so, here's some quick nutritional highlights from a bowl of this porridge. It gives you 33% RDI of proteins, 32%RDI of fibres, only 6% of saturated fats and a nice boost of slow-release energy with 367 calories. Make it in just 15 minutes following the steps below. Enjoy!


Measuring System
Poached Plums
Water120 mL
Cinnamon1/2 tsp
Soy Milk380 mL
Oats60 g
Turmeric1/2 tsp
Almond Butter1 tbsp
Soy Yogurt100 g
Pumpkin Seeds15 g

Step 1

Let's start by preparing the poached plums.

Pour water in a saucepan and stir in the ground cinnamon. Then, add the plums, halved and pitted.

Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes covered. The plums will soften and release their juices which will turn into a delicious, purple syrup.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine soy milk and oat flakes in a clean pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Then, lower the heat and cook the porridge for 5 minutes while stirring continuously to avoid the oats getting stuck to the bottom of the pan and burning.

Step 3

When the oatmeal has thickened, stir in the turmeric powder and almond butter.

Mix well to incorporate the ingredients and then remove the pan from the heat.
