Cook Breakfast Cure with a Stovetop Method

Although the slow-cooker and instant pot methods offer a “set it and forget it” approach to cooking our meal kits, a common question we get around here is, “Can I cook Breakfast Cure on the stove?” Yes, and there are many reasons cooking breakfast on a burner could come in handy, so we offer our suggestions for success. If you want to try our flavors without sweating the proper appliance, you can cook Breakfast Cure with a stovetop method.

All of our flavors can be cooked this way, but many of the whole grains take quite a few hours, so we suggest starting with white rice-based recipes such as Mango and Sticky Rice and Masala Chai. Stay close, pay attention, stir and add water as needed.

You’ll be rewarded with your Breakfast Cure. It will come out just the way it’s supposed to and offer all the benefits of breakfast that feels like a hug. It will take approximately 1-2 hours.

Step Five:

Keep stirring as needed to keep from sticking and add water any time the Breakfast Cure gets thick and begins to stick at all. This method will use about twice as much water as the slower methods due to evaporation. 

Step Six:

When you cook Breakfast Cue with a stovetop method, be sure not to leave your pan unattended as it will need frequent stirring and the addition of more water. Every pot and stove is different, so paying attention to your particular setup is the key to success. Depending on the stove and pan, you may be able to turn to low and cover, or semi-cover between stirring.
