Oatmeal is good for you, especially when you skip the sugar and compliment it with savory, high protein ingredients.
Some facts from The Whole Grains Council,
- Oatmeal is a whole grain that contains a soluble fiber called Beta glucan that has been shown to suppress appetite and promote gut health.
- Oatmeal contains compounds called polyphenols that have strong antioxidant, anti-itching and anti-inflammatory properties.
We love Overnight Savory Oats so much that we featured them on the packages of our Classic Chicken Bone Broth. Make this breakfast even more worthy with one or more inspired toppings:
Take Overnight Savory Oats in a new direction
Egg: Crack a raw egg into a small cup and gently pour it over the oats once they’ve come to a simmer; cover your pan. Cook until the white is set. Season with salt and pepper or Old Bay seasoning. While cooking, strike a few superhero poses to get your day started right.
Pimentón and yogurt: When the oats are done cooking, garnish with a couple of tablespoons of plain, full fat yogurt and a generous dash of Pimentón (smoked paprika) ¡Olé!
Spinach: Give your oats the Florentine treatment by tossing a large handful of baby spinach into your oats when they’re done cooking. Sprinkle with nutmeg and serve.
Cashews and curry: Wake up your senses by garnishing your cooked oats with 2 tablespoons chopped salted cashews and a bold dash of yellow curry powder.
Parmesan and herbs: Sprinkle a few tablespoons of parmesan cheese and some dashes of dried basil, oregano or tarragon. A dab of butter would make this even more luxurious.
