Love high-protein oatmeal for breakfast? We do too! After our yummy high-protein golden turmeric porridge, we thought of doubling down with another nutritious breakfast recipe. And so here we are, with this high-protein tofu oatmeal made with creamy silken tofu, juicy fruit, and crunchy nuts.
We are always amazed by the versatility of silken tofu. With its delicate flavour and creamy consistency, tofu is one of the top ways to thicken your vegan recipes and top up with plant-based proteins. Be it smoothies, cakes, or porridge, tofu will deliver.
To get extra proteins, we added a handful of nuts. We like to pair creamy bases with crunchy toppings, as the contrast of the two textures makes dishes more interesting. Something else we love about this recipe is the fruit we used: orange and kiwi. These two fruits add a little bit of acidic contrast to the sweet oats, tingling our taste buds with excitement. Such a nice way to start the day!
Because oats and fruit have so many fibres, and tofu very few fats, this porridge makes a great breakfast for those on a weight-loss program. Dietary fibres, in particular, play a critical role in weight management, as they slow down the absorption of nutrients and make us feel satiated for longer. A bowl of this tofu oatmeal has 40% RDI of fibres! Awesome.
Fibres are also critical to energy release, helping our body get the juice it needs slowly and steady. With 370 calories, this oatmeal will support you throughout the morning. Plus, you'll get 36% RDI of proteins and only 8% RDI of saturated fats!
Ready for this? It will be ready in just 10 minutes. Let's go!
