Cook the breakfast cure using a stovetop method
While 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 the Cura de breakfast on the stove?” Yes, and there are many reasons why cooking breakfast over a fire could be useful, so we offer our suggestions for success. If you want to try our flavors without breaking a sweat on the right appliance, you can cook the Breakfast Cure using a stovetop method.
All of our flavors can be cooked this way, but many of the whole grains take a few hours, so we recommend starting with white rice recipes like Mango and Sticky Rice and Masala Chai. Stay close, pay attention, stir and add water if needed.
You will be rewarded with your Breakfast Cure. It will come out just as it’s supposed to and provide all the benefits of breakfast that feels like a hug. It will take approximately 1-2 hours.
Select a saucepan with as thick a bottom as possible. Pour the contents of a Breakfast Cure packet into the pan, opening the healthy fat packet if there is one, and adding that as well.

Every pot and stove is different, so paying attention to your particular setup is the key to success. Depending on your stove and pan, you may be able to lower and cover, or semi-cover between stirring.
