Boil Veggie Broth


Place vegetable stock (or water) in a medium saucepan with a lid. Bring it to boil.

Soak Oats Overnight

Off the heat, stir in the steel-cut oats and salt. Cover it with the lid and let it sit on the kitchen counter overnight.


Make The Veggie Topping

In the morning, make the veggie topping by sautéing mushrooms and baby spinach in a skillet for 6-8 minutes or until all the veggies are cooked.


Warm Oatmeal

Put the saucepan back on the stove and heat it over medium heat. Stir it frequently using a wooden spoon to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.



Ladle steel-cut oatmeal into a bowl. Top it off with cooked mushrooms and spinach. If using, add the cooked egg on top.


Season & serve

Season it with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes, if using. Serve it right away and store the leftovers to enjoy in the next few days.
