Savory Salsa Oatmeal

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A different twist on oatmeal. Packed with vegetables, cheese, and salsa, this is super healthy and delicious. Even if you're not an oatmeal fan you should give this a try. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you like or add Tabasco® or chiles for some heat."

  1. Combine water, oats, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high in the microwave until the water is absorbed and oats are tender, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Cook onion, red bell pepper, olives, and black beans in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir onion mixture, salsa, and Cheddar cheese into cooked oatmeal.
  3. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat; cook egg to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes. Top oatmeal with fried egg. Garnish with diced avocado and sour cream.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Prepare oatmeal on the stovetop according to directions on the package if preferred.
  • One possible variation: Substitute scallions, mushrooms, and snap peas for the onion, pepper, olives, and beans. Substitute soy sauce for the salsa. Omit the avocado and sour cream.

I cooked oatmeal on stove and added some kale. Great breakfast or meal when it gets cold outside. I halved the recipe but had to add some extra water for the oats to absorb.
