This is how I like to start my Saturdays … with a comforting bowl of savory oatmeal. And this one is loaded with goodness (hello anti-inflammatory ingredients!). It has a few steps … but you can quickly cook up the “tofu” and tart cherry reduction while the oatmeal is simmering. So, it’s simpler than it may seem.
What’s basically like risotto, yet based on oats rather than Arborio rice? Savory oatmeal! And I’m a ginormous fan of it! In fact, I wrote an entire recipe slideshow on savory oatmeal for Livestrong.com. Continuing on that creative and craveable culinary journey, I’ve got another one to share. It’s an entire meal-in-one and fits perfectly with the Recipe Redux theme this month: “Break Out of Breakfast Boredom!” This recipe’s got an Asian twist and amazing taste. Hope you enjoy this big bowl of lovin’ as much as I do. Hint: Try it for all-day breakfast! Calories saved: 40 Why it’s better for you? Hello veggies! Hello fiber!
There’s no need to head to a quick-service chain for a breakfast bite on the go. Homemade oatmeal can be nearly as 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! Calories saved: 50 Why it’s better for you? Lots less sugar, lots more fiber and protein, and lots of veggie goodness
