Savory Oats with Veggies

What You'll Need


4 cups of water

2 cups of quick cooking steel cut oats

1 tsp Italian seasoning

½ tsp sea salt

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

½ cup nutritional yeast flakes

¼ tsp turmeric

1 ½ cup baby kale or spinach

½ cup diced mushrooms

¼ cup shredded carrots

½ cup diced bell peppers


How to Make It


1 Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan.

Cooking Tips

Substitute any of your favorite vegetables. Some of my favorites are asparagus, onions, and green beans.

For a delicious alternative, spread the savory oats out in a baking dish, sprinkle breadcrumbs on top, and broil for a few minutes until the bread crumbs are browned and crispy. Substitute rolled oats for steel cut.

Try substituting Herbamare for the salt for additional flavor.
