A healthy breakfast for champions to kick off the day. It’s delicious, comforting and hearty!
Simply combine 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup red lentils, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cup vegetable broth, 1 small clove of garlic minced, 1 small shallot or onion chopped in a saucepan. Bring everything to a low boil, reduce heat and let simmer uncovered for approximately 10 minutes (until cooked and thickened). Salt, pepper and any spice mix you like. Spoon in a bowl with all desired toppings.
You can play with liquid types, herbs and spices. Like making it more Thai coco red curry with mangoes or papaya or Italian herbs and sun-dried tomatoes or even Indian masala. Let your imagination create an infinity of combination!
For a gluten-free option, you can used quinoa oats.
Our savory oatmeal and lentil bowl on the picture was topped with beet hummus, sliced avocados, cherry tomatoes, scallions and flax crackers. Yummy!
