3 x Breakfast Oatmeals & Copenhagen
read full recipe  » 
Even though we have posted countless porridge recipes on this blog - baked, soaked and cooked - we recently realized that we never have posted one of our standard breakfast oatmeals. Oatmeal is one of the most common breakfasts for us on early weekday mornings. It’s quick to make and you only need one ingredient for the most basic recipe. But it can also be prepared in endless varieties depending on season and preference. You can cook oats with water, fruit- or vegetable juice or any kind of milk. And you can either stick to just rolled oats or mix them with quinoa flakes, rye flakes, chia seeds, linseeds or any other kind of seed. We have shared three different set-ups here. One with oat and rye flakes cooked on carrot juice, one standard oatmeal cooked with coconut milk and the last one has egg added to the oatmeal for a protein boost. We have also used different toppings on them. Berries, dried fruit, seeds, nibs, compotes, nut butters and even vegetables are often added to our oatmeals. Remember that the actual oatmeal is only 45 percent of the experience. The most important part are the toppings. So don’t be shy, build mountains of different toppings. We’d love to see your oatmeal creations on Instagram. Hashtag it  #gksbreakfast so we wont miss out on anything. To be on the safe side you could also tag either David:  @gkstories or Luise:  @luisegreenkitchenstories.  Were looking forward to see what you come up with! We were inspired to do this post about oatmeals after our recent visit to the Copenhagen porridge restaurant Gr?d. They serve both sweet and savory porridges and going there feels just like coming home, as they share our love for these warm grainy bowls. The carrot oatmeal further down is similar to something we had there. We have also put together a list of our other favorite places in Copenhagen, in case some of you plan a visit during the summer.
