I discovered this amazing concoction by combining all the ingredients left in my fridge at the end of the week. I added sweet potato, spinach, corn, and cauliflower rice but this recipe can be made with any veggies. It is simple and satisfying.
1/2 cup oats
1 cup chicken broth
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon olive oil or butter
1/4th cup sweet potato (baked)
1/4th cup spinach
1/4th cup corn (steamed)
1/4th cup cauliflower rice (frozen)
Parmesan cheese (optional)
- Bring the broth to a boil then reduce to a simmer and stir in oats.
- Cook for about 10 minutes until the oats begin to absorb the broth. Stir in more chicken broth as needed.
- Once the oats start to thicken add the rest of the ingredients. I baked the sweet potato the night before and I steamed corn on the cob. I used frozen cauliflower rice from Trader Joe’s. On a side note, cauliflower rice is a great alternative to rice or pasta. TJ’s sells it frozen or raw. If you cook it with brown rice, broth, and parmesan cheese it resembles risotto. Recipe to come!
- Place an egg on top and serve!
