Deep in the darkness where the trees were lined with frost and the ponds were covered with a thick film of ice, there was a girl faced with a terribly conflicting decision.  She desperately wanted pesto, yet she longed for oats.  There is only one choice for a person to make in a position such as that - make Savory Pesto Oats!  Not only do they satisfy every party in question, but they will also warm you from the inside, should you ever find yourself in a position resembling the one above.

Savory Pesto Oats

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup rice milk (or other milk)
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons pesto 
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled

Combine the oats, milk, and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer until the oats are creamy, around 7 to 10 minutes.  Remove the oats from the heat and stir in the pesto, nutritional yeast, and garlic powder. Pour oats into a bowl and top with goat cheese.

To make vegan: either omit the goat cheese or replace it with a vegan cheese.

The result:
Yes, it is as good as it looks.

That savory bowl of oats has my name written all over it as I LOVE anything with pesto!

Favorite oat combo? Too many to choose from. Let's see, for savory oats, I love goat cheese, an egg, and fresh basil and for sweet, I love adding nut butter and chocolate.

That savory oat combo sounds wonderful! If I'd read this a little bit sooner, I would have been having something a little bit different for breakfast. ;) As for the sweet combo, I love doing the exact same thing - especially when the nut butter is peanut butter (tastes similar to a Reeses!).


I've never had savory oats before. I may just try them though! I love their vibrant green color! :)

Wow, these look super awesome! I tried savory oats once... it was a little weird, but I think I just wasn't used to it. I stirred salsa and hummus into them, then topped them with black beans. Maybe I just need to try it again!

Savory oats do seem weird at first. I mean, oats are for breakfast, right? But savory oats are delicious once you get used to them. I hope you like them! :)
