Savory steel cut oats have become a go to breakfast meal recently. I love the crunchy texture of the oats and it works well with just about any ingredient. When I can find organic steel cut oats, that's what I buy. At $.17 per serving, it's a great item to have in stock packed with nutrients. My latest experiment with savory oats was slightly sweet with the addition of beets. If you're looking for a savory oats recipe that's slightly sweet, give this version a try.
Savory Oats with Beets and Kale
1/2 cup dry organic steel cut oats
1 1/2 cups filtered water
1/4 cup celery rib, diced
1/4 cup sweet onion, diced
2 cups baby kale
1 cup beet root, diced
Add the first four ingredients to the Instant Pot and give it a quick stir stir. Set Instant Pot to manual for 10 minutes on high pressure. Release pressure, remove lid and stir in beets and kale. Once the kale starts to wilt, dish out the oats and enjoy!
The beets and kale provide so much flavor, I've found there's no need to add salt or pepper to this. If you get around to trying this recipe, let me know what you think.
