Savory Oatmeal

May 21, 2019

Skip your traditional sweet oatmeal and give this savory oatmeal combination a spin instead! The combination of whole grain oats, red onion, sauteed spinach, a soft boiled egg, chicken sausage, and avocado make not only a delicious breakfast but a quick lunch or easy snack, too!

Savory Oatmeal

If you haven’t had savory oatmeal before, you’re in for a treat! It may sound odd to add savory toppings to your oatmeal, but the combination is truly delicious. Think of this more like a quinoa or rice bowl that you would have for breakfast. Or, if you grew up eating grits for breakfast, this would relate.

The great thing about savory oatmeal is that it comes together really fast, too! Especially, if you have done a little meal prep on Sunday. You can have a delicious oatmeal bowl like this ready in minutes. Five minutes is seriously all you will need.

It starts with a base of our Organic Unsweetened oatmeal. We didn’t add any seasonings to the oatmeal, but you could easily add in some garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper or even nutritional yeast! Nooch (a.k.a nutritional yeast) adds a nice, nondairy, cheese-like flavor.

Then we topped the oatmeal with a hard-boiled egg ad chicken sausage that we already had prepared from the fridge, sautéed up a bit of spinach, added some diced red onion. Of course, we can’t forget the avocado. It goes with everything, right? Finally, we finished it off with some Everything But The Bagel Seasoning.

The flavors come together so well. Plus, this bowl offers a great balance of carbs, protein, and healthy fats, and sneaks in some veggies in the morning. Sounds like a win, don’t you think?

Are you convinced to try savory oatmeal yet? If not, there are still great options for sweet versions like this Strawberry Oatmeal Parfait or these eight oatmeal combinations that are great for meal prep.
