Recipe: Savory Oatmeal with Kale, Mushrooms and Pecans

Recipe: Savory Oatmeal with Kale, Mushrooms and Pecans

Move over avocado toast and smoothie bowls. Savory oats – svoats, if you will - is the new way to enjoy your classic, rise-and-shine-Instagram-worthy breakfast. Greens, avocado, a spoonful of salsa – the options are endless. Play around with toppings and spices – almost anything goes. And of course, a poached egg always takes everything to the next level.

Savory Oatmeal with Kale, Mushrooms and Pecans

Makes 2 hearty servings (for 2 smaller servings, cut everything but the egg by half)

Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
1 ¾ cup water
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 bunch kale, de-stemmed and chopped coarsely
½ lb. shiitake mushrooms
¼ cup chopped pecans, or nut of your choice
2 eggs, poached
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the water to a simmer. Add the oats and turn the heat down, stirring. Cook for 6-8 minutes, or until the liquid is fully absorbed and the oats are soft.
2. In a large skillet, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add mushrooms, freshly ground pepper, and crushed red pepper and sauté until tender. Add kale and sauté for about 4-6 minutes.
3. Poach egg.
4. Portion the oats and top with mushroom, kale, pecan, and a poached egg. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
