Mixed Vegetable Savory Oatmeal
Our weekday breakfast almost always includes oatmeal, either sweet or savory and somehow, we never get bored of it. A bowl of oatmeal is not just satisfying but it also helps us kick start the morning. Every time, I shared a photo of savory oatmeal on my Instagram feed, I instantly received a few requests to share a recipe. So, finally here is our favorite version with assorted vegetables and mild spices!
What you need for this Mixed Vegetable Savory Oatmeal
assorted bite size cut vegetables, you can use the froze ones too
plain rolled oats
Half boiled or hard boiled eggs
Freshly cracked pepper
Finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
You can make your own version by using some greens or your choice of vegetables. You can also add more spices and heat, if you prefer. This is something I often make only for breakfast and therefore, I try to keep the spices very light.
Can you make this Oatmeal in advance?
Of course, you can make it in advance. The only thing to keep in mind is that as the oatmeal sits, it thickens ups. So, either keep it more watery or add a little hot water when you warm the oatmeal before serving.
I personally like to drizzle ghee and top it with egg for the texture and extra flavor but you can always leave it out to keep it simpler. Oatmeal is such a healthy blank canvas to work around your taste buds that you can play with your creative juices and make your own version. I have a few other versions of savory oatmeal that I whip up on busy days and I will share them with you soon!
