To someone who has never tried making or eating savory oats, they might sound a little strange. Usually, when we think of oatmeal or porridge, we see sweet fruits and spices folded into the creamy grains. But, believe you me, savory oats hit a spot of filling satisfaction that sometimes the sweeter can’t really give. I love to incorporate veggies into mine to bring it full circle, and almost all of the time I use nutritional yeast to give it a slightly cheesy flavor (and a lot of B vitamins).

I find that this meal is great for lunch because it is the great medium between breakfast and dinner, and that’s what the personality of the dish seems like to me. It lends itself to Italian recipes in terms of flavor, but it pretty ambiguous in every other way. One great thing about these savory rosemary veggie oats is that they come together in minutes and couldn’t be easier to make. So, anyone from those of you who are just getting into cooking at home to the well-seasoned cook can make these with confidence.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Non-Dairy Milk
  • 3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 Cup White Onion, Diced
  • 1/2 Cup Button Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Collard Greens, Chopped (Firmly Packed)
  • 1/2 Cup Tomato, Chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  1. Get a small pot and a small pan out on the stove. In the small pot, place the oats water, non-dairy milk, and nutritional yeast. Put the heat to medium, and bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  2. In the small pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. When the pan is hot, start sauteing the onions until they start to become clear.
  3. Once the oats come to a boil, adjust the heat to low-medium and stir them every minute or so, so that they don't burn on the bottom.
  4. Return your attention back to the small pan, add the button mushrooms and collard greens to the onions and sauté until the mushrooms are softened and the collards are slightly wilted.
  5. Next, add the tomato and rosemary to the vegetable mixture and cook together for 3 minutes. Do not worry about the excess moisture from the tomatoes, the oats will soak it up for the perfect texture.
  6. Now combine the oats and veggie mixture in the small pot and stir until well incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve warm.

I LOVE this recipe. I make it all the time for weekday breakfasts. It keeps me full and satisfied until lunchtime! To save myself some time, I will chop and sautee 3x the veggies at night and divide them into containers. That way, in the morning, all I have to do is cook the oats, microwave the veggies, and stir them in.
