Tips & Tricks:

  • Although we prefer stovetop, this recipe can absolutely be made in the microwave. You will need to microwave on high for 1-2 minutes stirring after the first minutes, then after 30 seconds. 
  • You can also opt for nonfat (skim), low fat (1-2%), or alternative milk instead of water. This will add more protein, calcium, and vitamin D.
