Savory Oatmeal


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided
  • 1 small shallot thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms halved
  • 4 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 large eggs
  • Chives for serving


Cook the Oatmeal

  • Microwave Instructions: Place all the ingredients into a medium microwave safe bowl and stir together. Heat in the microwave on high until the oatmeal is puffed and softened, about 2 minutes. Immediately stir in the parmesan cheese.
  • Stovetop Instructions: In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the oats. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are soft and have absorbed most of the liquid, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the parmesan cheese.

Cook the Vegetables

  • In a medium skillet, heat half tablespoon olive oil and add the shallots and cook until they start to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until browned, about 5 more minutes. Add the spinach and stir with the shallots with mushrooms until wilted, about 1 more minute. Spoon the vegetables over the cooked oats and set aside to keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, heat the remaining olive oil and fry the egg until the whites are set. Serve over the oatmeal and sprinkle with chives, if desired.



Make Ahead Tips: The oatmeal can be mad 4 to 5 days ahead of time.
Substitutes: You can swap the veggies for any you have to hand.
