Change up your every day oats by adding a savory twist!
Oatmeal is such a delicious and filling breakfast. It is hearty and healthy, with so many variations.
This delicious recipe adds in extra veggies to your first meal of the day, leaving you full and satisfied for hours to come!
As a fan of savory over sweet, I loved this breakfast and cannot wait to try more variations!
Use the ingredients you have on hand and top with eggs. Trust me!
Oats can be used similarly to barley, risotto, and other grains. Think of it as a blank canvas.
