As the colder weather starts spreading its frosty tentacles northward, we instinctively turn toward the comfort foods that nourish our bodies and provide us with the warmth we crave.
And what better way to start the day off than with a wholesome breakfast that is quick, easy, and delicious? Enter avocado oatmeal! Bonus points for being tasty enough to snack upon whenever the mood, or a growling stomach, strikes.
The beauty of oats is the fact that they are equally delicious in sweet or savory dishes. Chilly winters compel anyone to yearn for comforting, filling meals, and a hearty avocado oatmeal is just the ticket. This recipe for avocado oatmeal provides an already wholesome meal with a burst of green freshness and adds variety to a breakfast classic.
First, you’ll need to make sure that your avocado is perfectly ripe in order to ensure you have the creamy topping your oatmeal deserves. To choose the perfect avocado, look for a dark green bumpy skin and a fruit that gently yields to light pressure without caving in.
Using a little bit of oil in a saucepan, toast up some chili flakes, garlic powder, and any other favorite spice. Once they’re sizzling, add a cup of water and bring to a boil, adding the rolled oats once it comes to temperature. Reduce the heat and then chop up half of the avocado while you wait for your oatmeal to finish cooking.
Once your oatmeal is just about cooked, add the spring onion and an egg, stirring vigorously to incorporate and cook the egg. Tip the contents into a bowl and gently spoon the diced avocado out of its skin and into the bowl.
There you have it – a scrumptious, hot breakfast in no time at all.
