savory spinach & “goat cheese” oatmeal

by Jackie Newgent  |  August 12, 2014  |  3 Comments

Bowl of Savory Oatmeal

A bowl of savory oatmeal, including this savory spinach & “goat cheese” oatmeal, is so much more interesting than the more traditional sweet version. And homemade oatmeal can be a quick and simple. Pre-prep the ingredients the night before, if you like. Then skip the snooze alarm and whip up this great-tasting, good-for-you, comforting take on oatmeal. By going savory instead of sweet, it’ll be more satisfying than a few extra minutes of disrupted sleep anyway!

Enjoy alongside a cup of green tea and, if you wish, a serving of fresh seasonal fruit.

Description

A bowl of savory oatmeal, including this savory spinach & “goat cheese” oatmeal, is so much more interesting than the more traditional sweet version. And homemade oatmeal can be a quick and simple. Pre-prep the ingredients the night before, if you like. Then skip the snooze alarm and whip up this great-tasting, good-for-you, comforting take on oatmeal. By going savory instead of sweet, it’ll be more satisfying than a few extra minutes of disrupted sleep anyway!

Enjoy alongside a cup of green tea and, if you wish, a serving of fresh seasonal fruit.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 1/4 cups water or low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 3 large sun-dried tomato halves, not oil-packed, finely chopped (do not rehydrate)
  • 1 scallion, green and white parts, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned whole grain rolled oats
  • 3 cups packed fresh baby spinach (3 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest + additional for garnish
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
