In a medium sized pot, bring the almond milk to a boil. Stir in steel cut oats and return to boil. Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring occassionally.
Add remaining ingredients (pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, grated ginger, vanilla, salt) and stir. Continue to simmer for another 15 minutes or until the oatmeal is the consistency that you prefer. Keep in mind that the oatmeal will thicken when it cools.
