Oats are such a versatile ingredient and I love using them for things like Overnight Oats and Baked Oatmeal so this time around instead of trying something sweet I decided to try my hand at adding veggies to a Savory Baked Oatmeal recipe. Enjoy!
2 cups rolled oats
1–1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, whisked
2 cups milk
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 small sweet potato peeled & diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 cup mushrooms, diced
2 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
salt, as desired
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 8” baking dish with parchment paper
In a large bowl mix oats, baking powder, egg & milk and set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato, peppers, onion & mushroom and cook until soft, stirring frequently, around 8 minutes.
Add in spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Add in tomato paste & spices and stir to combine.
Remove vegetable mixture from heat and add to oat mixture until evenly combined.
Pour into prepared baking dish and place in oven for 30-35 minutes or until baked through.
Allow to cool then store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
