This is my take on savory oatmeal. It’s cozy and nourishing and full of toasty and umami flavors– without being too heavy. It’s also a nice not sweet breakfast option that isn’t avocado toast.
Some life updates:
Mica has to have eye surgery and we’re trying to to think of ways to spoil her post-op. It will probably look something like this.
I turned 35.
Phil and I recently discovered Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix and are LOVING it.
Hope you all are keeping warm! xo
*Instead of arugula, try pea shoots or other microgreens. Steamed broccoli is also delicious here, and I bet spinach would be tasty, too.
1/2 cup rolled oats, GF if needed
2 tsp miso
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Couple handfuls of arugula (or other veg; see note)
Garnishes: thinly sliced scallion, toasted sesame seeds, drizzle of toasted sesame oil, tamari
- Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add oats, reduce heat, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Remove from heat and let stand for a couple of minutes.
- Stir in miso, red pepper flakes, and arugula, and let stand a couple of minutes more.
- Transfer to a bowl and top with desired garnishes.
Yield: 1 serving
