Savory Oatmeal

I love oatmeal for breakfast, but don’t have much of a sweet tooth. This is a great variation. The consistency varies depending on what quality of oats you use. This recipe is for rolled oats. If you prefer steel-cut oats, double the liquid and triple the cooking time, and microwave covered for the first 6 minutes.

 Savory Oatmeal

 Oats – 1/2 cup
Water – 1/2 cup
Broth – 1/2 cup (I prefer a vegetarian “chicken” broth, but you could also use prepared onion soup or whatever other broth you like)
Peas and carrots – 1/2 cup (I buy the canned version, frozen works too, just thaw first)
Cheddar cheese – 2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper to taste

 Combine oats, broth and water. Microwave for 2 minutes. Watch carefully and stir as needed to keep from boiling over. Add peas and carrots and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in cheese and serve.

 Makes one good-sized serving.
