Well my love affair of Oat Bran has continued onto the savory side. I’ve seen a lot of people try savory oats but it never really appealed to me. Since oat bran has a similar texture to grits, I decided making a savory twist on them could be delicious..and man was I right!
I started off with 1/3 c. of oat bran and made it on the stove top. I put 1/2 T. of nutritional yeast in it as well as some salt and pepper. This was my first time trying nutritional yeast too! I always see Gina using it on popcorn and such and wanted to try out this alternative to cheese!
It was pretty tasty, I have to say. It wasn’t overwhelming or anything. It reminded of the powdered white cheese you find on rice cakes or something.
I topped my oats with 1 egg + 1 egg white, Texas Pete and a sprinkle of sharp cheddar cheese.
This was so. good.
If you have never tried savory oats before, I HIGHLY recommend it. With every bite of this I was mmming and saying how delicious it was (to Toby since James was at work!). I will be making this again…and again!!
Yesterday I went back to Hemlock Bluffs to run with a friend on the trails and it was so much fun! Having a running buddy is fantastic! I’ve definitely missed having one. It makes the time go by so quickly and one more lap means more time to chat. Plus Toby had a great time running around and sniffing everything. One drawback of trail running: we saw a snake!! A big long black one! It was freaky. I just thanked God Toby didn’t see it!
Do you like running alone or with others? I really like running with people, as long as we are at pretty much the same running level and like eachother!
