Savoury Oats

I am not one to mix salty and sweet to often.

But things have changed my friends. I now am loving to try out new combos like that!

Things have changed! But before we get to that....

Happy Tuesday! I feel like I haven't written to you for abit (which is true). Sorry about that, things got a tad crazy with finals and such, but that is done now, and I can welcome Christmas properly...with you all! Heck yes! Nothing like a Christmas party! And awards....!

That's right. I've been tagged in the versatile blogger award from Haley. The rules are for me to share 7 random facts with you all. Which is no problemo, since I am quite the random gal.

1. I honestly do not like cheesecake. Shocking I know, but seriously putting cheese in cake gives me the creeps. Chills in fact....anyone else? no? just me..?

2. I can sing every single song from the following musicals- Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and the Amazing TTechnicolour Dreamcoat, Hairspray, Grease, Sound of Music, Oklahoma. Not well mind you, I just know all the songs, to well.

3. I haven't updated my ipod in over 4 months, its been dead for 3 months, I just sing to myself at the gym or when I work out ( see number 3)

4. I didn't know what Cheese Whiz was until I was 14. *shudder*

5. I have a lucky scarf I wear to all my exams.

6. I prefer dark DARK chocolate (like 90%) over milk, or regular dark varieties

7.  I hardly ever wear my contacts, I love my glasses way WAY to much.

Well that was fun! Kinda...anyone relate to these randoms?

Okay! Onto the party!



The Savoury Food Creeping Party....on a Tuesday, instead of actually Wednesday...enjoy!



Savoury Oats:
*1/2 cup rolled oats (or rice flakes)
*1 cup water or vegetable broth
*pinch of basil, oregano, pepper, cayenne and salt
-Place oats in a small pot, pour water or stock over top and cook until water has completely dissolved, then add the spices you want. Feel free to mix it up and get creative!

Stir in and let sit, so it sets up a bit - and cook your egg!


Use a small pan, oil it well with olive oil and wait until hot.
Then, crack your egg and wait until set, flip carefully with a rubber spatula
Cook the other side until cooked (to your desire)- I like mine a bit drippy.


Place on a bed of lettuce, place and serve with whatever veggie you want!
Some good sides/add in's:
*Marinated artichokes, peppers, olives
*Tomato's, tomato sauce, salsa (recommended!)
*Peas, endamame, corn, sauteed spinach, cheese
* Pumpkin/sunflower seeds, chopped almonds or walnuts
* A bit of fresh parsley, basil or oregano (for the top)
* Berries, jam (love eggs and jam!)-for a sweet aspect.


Bam! Random yes, but delicious! I think so!
Try them out folks! The sweet and salty combo is here to stay!
Enjoy the rest of your day, and week!
I will be back soon with a sweet for all mah sweeties!
It's been to long my friends, to long.

-Lauren.

You have inspired me.

I have always wanted to try savory oats, but have always been a little turned off. Now I think I need to finally try them! And how can I not with your drool-worthy pictures?

Andrea@Vegvacious said...

I can't believe you're a non-cheesecake lover?! :-( Thankfully, your pics and recipe for savoury oats totally make up for it!

lactosefreelizzie said...

YUM! savory oats are great--i usually put beans and tomato sauce and nooch on mine :)

Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers said...

Wow - they're all pretty interesting, but I can't get past the cheesecake one. haha

This looks delicious! And i bet its loaded with fiber. Since I'm always on the look out for new ways to incorporate fiber into my day, I can't wait to give this recipe a try.

Allison said...

I love savory oats! I think a lot of people find it weird, but I think it's great. Your presentation was beautiful!

Simply Life said...

I would never think to prepare oats like this but you make it look so good!

cheesymiteapples said...

I've never attempted to make any type of savory oatmeal...yours looks incredible :)

Allison @ PickyEatingRD said...

Holy wow it is practically Wednesday already isn't it. This week is flying by. Great eats!

Stephanie said...

I don't like cheesecake either. I like my desserts a bit more substantial...I'm not crazy about cheesecake, mousse or custard. I like to chew my food.

Shannon said...

I've never tried savory oats before but it sounds good! :)

I love dark DARK chocolate too! Sometimes I buy the 100% kind, but its a bit pricey here.

blissfulbritt said...

Hooooomuhhgoodness!! These oats look amazing. I have never seen oats like this nor have I thought to combine all these on top of each other like this! YUM!

You don't love cheesecake? Aw :C
I've always wanted to try savory oats! If I can slap salsa on it, I love it.

feeedingbrainandbody said...

That's so ironic that you posted about savoury oats! I made some savoury oatbran the other day, and took a bunch of pictures and was going to do a post about it! Mine didn't look as good as yours those, yours look fantastic!!

Jessica said...

I love savory oats, but I don't eat them enough! Yours look delicious!

Chelsea said...

I just recently tried savoury oats too! I put it off for sooo long because I thought it sounded gross. But I ended up loving it!

Cait's Plate said...

Mmm - savory oats are SUCH a good idea! I need to do that!

dashofmeg said...

I just made savoury oats today so I HAD to look at yours :) Yours look so much prettier hehe! I also really loved your random facts :) I just did that this week too! I also love dark chocolate best, but I do loooove cheesecake ;)

caloricandcrazy said...

savory oats is something I have been wanting to try for a while. Kinda reminds me of risotto actually ;)

Kat @ Balance & Spice said...

I'm loving these savory oats - my favorite is with almond butter, soy sauce, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots and bean sprouts. Delish for lunch or dinner!
