We’re tackling porridge and giving it a wicked upgrade. This dish is like eating the soft crumble crust topping of a cobbler. The seared flavors of buttery oats, blueberries and cinnamon in the magic of a hot, cast iron pan is magic indeed.




  1. Soak oats overnight and drain really well before adding to skillet.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. To the soaked oats, add brown sugar and mix until completely combined.
  4. When skillet is hot, drop in the plant-based butter, let it melt to coat skillet.
  5. Add the oat/brown sugar mixture to the skillet, and spread to cover the surface of the skillet. (It’s gonna stick and that is what we want to brown the oats and add flavor.)
  6. Add blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg to the top, and let sit for the oats to caramelize.
  7. Scrape the skillet down with a spatula, add a splash of water and stir mixture until well combined.
  8. Spoon porridge onto plate. Add more fresh blueberries.
  9. Grate one macadamia nut with a microplane rasp or a fine grater to top porridge with macadamia snow.
  10. Add a few spoonfuls of the Oat Fraiche to the dish or your own homemade sour cream or coconut cream. Add mint leaves, and additional macadamia nuts to garnish.
