Have you tried savory oatmeal yet? It’s been on my “to do” list for, oh, probably about a year now.

Thank goodness I have the Recipe ReDux to help me get my savory breakfast game in gear, with this months theme…

Rise and Shine with a Savory Breakfast

The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast. Think egg burritos, beans and rice, or maybe even pasta?!

I missed the deadline to post, by 1 day, but I was so inspired by everyone else’s posts, that I wanted to share my savory oatmeal recipe with you anyway.

Another “thank goodness”, is that I finally went grocery shopping after a 2 week hiatus, spurred not only by our recent trip to Montana, but also by that fact that my kitchen fridge is on the fritz. And, I can’t get my repair guy to come for another 2 weeks. Le sigh…

Luckily, we have a fridge in the garage, but I’ve been a little resistant to fill it up because our kitchen is upstairs, and the garage is, naturally, downstairs, which means a LOT of up and down. I’ve decided to change my outlook though, and take this to be a good thing, because I’m getting LOTS of steps on my Apple Watch in!

This savory oatmeal with eggs, arugula, tomatoes, and avocado is such a happy breakfast idea, don’t you think???

Unlike some of my recipe ideas, that I take a LONG time to come up with, this one came to me in a flash.

I had just purchased the arugula, eggs, and avocado, and I already had the gluten free oats on hand.

Then, yesterday, I went to my parents house to check on their cat {while they were in Oregon to see the eclipse}, and while I was there, I picked these super cute yellow tomatoes my dad has been growing.

Aren’t they cute???

Dad: They are absolutely delicious, and add the perfect touch of sunshine to my savory oatmeal recipe!

Let me show all of you how easy it is to make!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup certified gluten free oats {or regular oats if not following a gluten free diet}
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened soy milk {or favorite plant based milk or low FODMAP milk}
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt plus additional to taste
  • 1 clove garlic* minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil {to cook egg}
  • 1 egg* poached {or over easy/sunny side up}
  • 1 cup arugula {or leafy green of choice}
  • 1/2 + cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 avocado** sliced
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Optional: White balsamic vinegar drizzle, chopped scallions, pesto, cheese {feta, Parmesan, goat}, chopped walnuts or other nuts or seeds.

Instructions

  • Combine oats, milk, and salt in a small pot. Heat on high until boiling, then reduce to low/simmer and stir in garlic. Cook for an additional ~5 minutes, or until oats are well cooked and creamy. Turn off heat until ready to serve.
  • While oats are cooking, poach egg using a silicon egg poacher. Heat a medium size pot on high until water boils, then turn to medium low. Grease egg holder with olive oil, and very carefully place it on top of the hot water. Crack egg into a small bowl, then pour egg into egg holder. Place a lid over the pot, and cook for ~ 5 minutes, or until egg white is thoroughly cooked, and egg yolk is desired consistency. Carefully remove egg holder from pot, and place in a small bowl until ready to serve.
  • To serve: Place arugula in a serving bowl, then top with oatmeal, egg, cherry tomatoes, and sliced avocado. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add additional toppings as desired {the white balsamic vinegar adds a delicious hint of sweet and sour taste.}

Notes

  1. For a vegan option, omit egg, and add chopped nuts/seeds, or crispy baked tofu.
  2. For a low FODMAP version, omit minced garlic, and add garlic olive oil to oatmeal instead. Use your favorite low FODMAP milk. Top with 1/8 avocado slices instead of 1/4.
  3. Don’t have a silicon egg holder? Watch this video on how to poach an egg, if needed.

    1. Thanks Anne!! And, I’m so glad you like my pig bowl too 🙂 I hope my repair guy can fix the fridge. I’ve had it for almost 16 years. I already need to buy a new oven, so I really don’t want to buy a new fridge too. Fingers crossed!
