Savoury Oat Porridge

Savoury OatsI’m sure a bowl of warming, filling and delicious oat porridge is a perfect breakfast in winter. What about savoury oats? It is a perfect comforting lunch or even dinner when you feel lazy to cook. All you need is a bag of rolled oats in your pantry and some left-over veggies in your fridge. Creamy oats are a great vehicle for toppings of your choice. I added cooked veggies with a hint of harrisa here but crunchy raw veggies, creamy avocado, grilled tofu, tamari roasted nuts and a soy sauce-sesame oil dressing would be nice, too. You can adjust cooking time and the amount of water depending on how you want your porridge to be. If you haven’t tried savoury oat porridge before, give it a go. It is perfect anytime of the day and surely warms you up 🙂


1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of hot water
1 cup of chopped veggies (I used eggplant, corn, carrot, onion and celery)
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp harissa
Himalayan salt to taste
1 tsp nutritional yeast

Heat coconut oil in a pot over medium heat and add chopped veggies, tomato paste and harissa. Cook for about 10 minutes or until veggies are cooked for your liking. Season with Himalayan salt and set aside. For the porridge, add oats and hot water in another pot. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes, keep stirring. Ladle porridge into a bowl, top with cooked vegetables and sprinkle nutritional yeast. Serve warm.
