Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal

Pleasantly tart rhubarb melts into this creamy oatmeal for sweet, fruity results with a bit of tang. Feel free to garnish with any additional berries you have on hand.

By Nancy Macklin, RDN,


  • 2 cups unsweetened plant-based milk, such as almond, soy, cashew, or rice
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (½-inch pieces)
  • ⅓ cup chopped pitted dates
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1½ cups sliced fresh strawberries


  • In a medium saucepan bring plant milk to boiling. Stir in oats, rhubarb, and dates. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
  • Top with strawberries and, if desired, serve with additional plant milk.

We really enjoyed this! Skipped the dates as we don't like it as sweet, and it was fine. Added a bit of cinnamon. Glad to find another use for our rhubarb!

Great combination of flavors. I added a teaspoon of vanilla which enhanced the oatmeal.


How many servings does this make?


This served two adults in our home for breakfast, about 1cup of cooked oats each.
