Savory vegan oatmeal

One of my favorite dinners when I’m cooking for one is a big bowl of oatmeal. And as a girl who will take salty over sweet any day, I came up with the perfect way to make a meal out of the popular breakfast food.

Just throw in some spices & veggies & whatever else you have up in the cupboard and voila! A tasty, healthy dinner. And the best part… it takes a max of 15 minutes to prepare. That sounds pretty darn good to me when I come dragging home from work in the evenings.
oats

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Quaker oats
1 cup water
dash of salt
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
3/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/8 cup shredded vegan cheese
Handful of spinach
Dash of Italian seasoning

Bring 1 cup of water to boil and cook oatmeal according to directions on package.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan. Saute mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes (if fresh). Sprinkle in Italian seasoning to taste. You can also use some fresh chopped basil or rosemary.

Once veggies have cooked, mix into oatmeal. Pour into a bowl, top with the shredded vegan cheese and enjoy your yummy, “cheesy”, savory oats!

Told you it was a cinch : )
