Essentials: Oatly + milk rice recipe

The first product that i want to feature is Oatly. Oatly is a proud Swedish company, that makes oat drinks that are a great alternative to milk. I am all about making my own milk alternatives but sometimes the time is not there to clean everything up, therefore when i buy, i buy Oatly. Other milk alternatives brands which are available in stores contain a ton of crap like sunflower oil, i don’t understand what oil is doing in there! I recommend Oatly because it tastes amazing, contains simple readable minimal ingredients, is creamy and delicious-making it great to cook and bake with. I love their vanilla, chocolate and pure oat drink. I find all three the bombdiggity 😀

 

 

Oatly’s products are organic and place a deep emphasis on producing only plant-based products that are environmentally and eco friendly. Their website is very informative, colorful, has funny illustrations and is enjoyable to read.

Oatly also contributed at the Way out West festival which is one of Sweden’s biggest music festival which decided back in 2012 to go completely meat free this cut the festivals carbon footprint by 25%. They topped this in 2015 by going milk free too with Oatly changing the festivals name to Way oat west. (see video below)

Toni Petersson the CEO of Oatly he also posts YouTube videos under a series called Toni Tv were he posts hilarious videos like the wow no cow song and also shares his thoughts.

Oatly has made it possible for me to remake a childhood dish that i loved and still love and that is Milchreis. As a child i would have done everything for Milk rice i was a milk rice monster. Milk rice is something that is known by most people in Germany and is especially loved by children, it is like a sweet milk risotto that is topped with hot cherries, applemus/applesauce or cinnamon usually.  I have tried making milk rice with coconut milk but that reminded me more of the Thai sticky rice which i also like -don’t get me wrong- but i never really found the milk rice from my childhood till i tried to make it with Oatly. I hope you enjoy it, its super quick and easy  to make and doesn’t really require much stuff 🙂

What you need:

Stove

cooking pot with a lid

wooden spoon

Ingredients:

1 cup of milk rice or risotto rice

4 1/2 cup of vanilla oatly 

toppings: cinnamon, berries or whatever you prefer

Method:

Place the 4 1/2 Cups of Oatly and the rice in a pot and bring to boil once it is boiling turn down the heat to low and let it simmer. Stir occasionally, if it gets to dry add more Oatly. This takes about 25 minutes. Once the rice is ready turn off the heat take the pot away from the stove top and let the rice rest for 10 minutes in the pot with the lid on. Serve in a bowl add your toppings and enjoy. This is a great breakfast, lunch dinner or dessert! 😉
