So I have seen savory oats about the blogosphere a few times now. I decided it was time to
man woman up and see if it’s something I like.
I present you with Oats + Eggs - I realize this probably sounds unappetizing but if you think about it oats are similar to rice. You can make sweet dishes with rice, like rice pudding and you can obviously make savory dishes with rice. So keep an open mind :)
Obviously I used my farm fresh eggs that are just oh.so.amazing.
So what’s in the mix? Did I like it?
Oats + Eggs
- 1/3c oats
- 1/3c almond milk, 2/3c water
- 1/2T chia seeds [mixed in the beginning]
- 1/3c cottage cheese [mixed in the end]
- 1 sunny side UP egg
- shaved aged cheddar goat cheese
First off. I LOVE LOVE LOVE sunny side up eggs, especially with toast + butter. I definitely enjoyed this bowl of oats. The cheese gave nice flavor and the gooey egg was awesome with each bite. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would…howEVER I missed my pnut butter and was CRAVING it after this bowl. This was good, but it would be more of a lunch bowl than breakfast. Maybe once in awhile when I’m in the mood for a savory breakfast…but you probably won’t see this too often. I urge you to try it out though!!
Frozen organic peppers are SO underrated. They are perfect to add to any dish you normally would [except maybe a fresh cold veggie samich].
Sautéed 1 portabella, frozen peppers and a little olive oil. Topped on an Ezekiel sprouted tortilla with a little provolone. Baked in the oven at 350* for about 5-10min and topped with 1/2 of an avocado. No sauce, so s+p…just veggie perfection with a little cheese :)
My homemade week started early!!! Any guesses what I made?? It was another successful first for me. Full disclosure tomorrow!
Check back tomorrow afternoon for a full post on the above creation + a SUPER AWESOME “CLEAN” GIVEAWAY!! It fits perfectly with homemade week and I can’t wait to kick it all off!
p.s. I’m feeling much better tonight…after a LOT of sleep last night and a big nap this morning I think I’m already cured. I can barely say that I was sick…it lasted for about 24hrs..lets hope it stays away!
