Oatmeal + Bone Broth? What more breakfast could you ask for. Well, especially if you’re into healthy and nutritious breakfast, these recipes can be your ultimate guide to a savory, delicious and delectable oatmeal to its otherwise bland taste. Right?
Here’s the basic 3-step formula to make oatmeal savory from Fearless Eating:
1. Soak one part oatmeal to two parts warm water overnight. Add 1 tsp whey, yogurt or lemon juice. This will make the oatmeal more digestible and it will also cook up very quickly.
2. Drain water and add chicken or beef bone broth and a chopped clove of garlic and simmer for about five minutes. This will take a little longer if you’re using steel-cut oats.
- Sriracha Oatmeal
- Once oatmeal is done simmering, add a dollop of worcestershire sauce and top with a fried egg (or two) and sriracha.
- Add some chopped chilies for some extra spiciness
- Top with some cilantro or parsley
- Oatmeal with Peas and Peanuts
- Add frozen peas when simmering oatmeal or fresh peas towards end. Top with peanuts and a dollop of sesame oil (optional). Season to taste with salt.

- Oatmeal with Mushrooms, Parmesan and Chives
- To simmering oatmeal add mushrooms. When ready, mix in grated parmesan, season with salt and top with fresh chives.
