Loaded Lunchtime Oatmeal

I got this one from ohsheglows and made it while Hurricane Sandy was wreaking havoc everywhere. I modified it a little by adding a can of roast beef in and basically just doubling the recipe, since I didn’t want to have to make a new batch each time (less dishes to wash, less time wasted, you know the drill). This may well be the first time I’ve ever actually made oatmeal in a pot (I kid you not; it’s always been microwaving and running off for me and my time-urgency-ridden type A personality).

This was full of savory goodness, and definitely nice for a cold winter-y (except it was still fall…) day. Even my cat wanted some, but I wouldn’t let him have any. I’m pretty protective over my food (and he had his own) :X

Loaded Lunchtime Oatmeal

-1 cup old fashioned oats
-3.5 cups water
-12 oz. frozen veggies (corn, broccoli, red bell peppers, cauliflower)
-freshly ground black pepper
-pinch of sea salt
-2 cloves of garlic, minced
-1 can black beans
-parsley flakes
-“eat well enjoy life” edamame hummus with roasted red pepper & sesame seeds
-more pepper

1) Throw oats and water into a pot on medium heat and stir frequently for 5 minutes.
2) Add frozen veggies directly into pot, along with the black pepper, sea salt, and garlic. Cook for about 7-8 more minutes on low-medium heat, stirring often.
3) Pour into a bowl and add toppings!
