Breakfast, I love you. Oatmeal, you are amazing.
What’s great about oatmeal is that it doesn’t always need to be sweet and topped with fruit. This take on oatmeal packs all the benefits of the hearty whole grain, plus protein from… drumroll… lentils!
Lentils are a staple in vegetarian diets. They can be seasoned to take on a variety of flavors… and you’ve probably seen them in curry dishes, veggie stews and on hearty salads.
Yesterday we made this savory oatmeal dish at Om, Nom — my yoga and food series at Boston Public Market. We started with 60-minutes of yoga bootcamp followed by a tasting and quick explanation of how to put together a healthy savory oatmeal bowl.
Here is the nutritional breakdown of this dish:
|Green lentils, 1 cup||680||2||115||59||50||3.9|
|GF Oats, 1 cup||300||5||54||8||12||2|
|Sweet potato, 1 cup cubed||114||0||27||4||2.1||6|
|Per serving (4)||354||9||53.25||21||17.025||3.225|
Now, get to cooking.
