A research study in Africa found that lime juice added to food helped protect people against cholera.

Culinary Taste Tip

Because they're completely natural and avoid much processing, steel cut oats retain more earthy flavor than the rolled oats traditionally used.

Culinary Technique Tip

Cooking oats in two types of milk smoothes out their chewiness, enhances their richness and makes them extra creamy.


1 1/4 cups low-fat soy milk
3/4 cup canned lite coconut milk
1/3 cup quick-cooking steel cut oats, such as McCann's brand
2 tablespoons muscovado sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 ounce dark chocolate, chopped
3/4 teaspoon finely grated lime peel


In a medium saucepan, combine soy milk, coconut milk and oats. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring constantly, 7 minutes (mixture will be thin). Remove from heat; stir in sugar and lime juice. Let stand in saucepan uncovered 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Transfer to bowls; top with chocolate and lime peel. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled.


Turbinado sugar (a minimally-refined sugar) may replace the muscovado (an unrefined dark sugar) and fat-free or 1% milk may replace the soy. Dark chocolate is optimally 70 percent or higher in cacao.

Comments on Steel Cut Oat Pudding with Dark Chocolate and Lime

From: leecris

This sounds really good but I am both diabetic and allergic to soy. Normally I use unsweetened Blue Diamond almond milk. If I made this recipe substituting almond milk for the soy & coconut milk, and used Endangered Species Black Panther dark chocolate (80% cocoa), would that work? How would the calories change?

I have a stevia plant, from which I make ice cubes (from stevia-steeped boiling water). The ice cubes have a green hue, but it might work in this recipe because of the lime in the pudding. This also made me think that maybe I could use those ice cubes in my homemade breakfast oatmeal mix packets. I cut the brown sugar by half, but maybe I could just replace it altogether with a stevia ice cube (when I add the water to microwave it). Thanks for the recipe.
