Savory Turmeric Chickpea Oats
Health Rating


1/2 cup Rolled oats- Gluten Free
1/2 cup Almond milk, unsweetened
1/2 cup Water
1 pinch Salt
1 dash Black pepper
1 cup Baby spinach
1 tbsp Nutritional yeast (heaping)
1/2 tsp Turmeric, ground (to taste)
1/3 cup Chickpeas, canned, drained (rinsed)
2 tbsp Green onion, scallion, ramp (chopped, optional topping)
1 sprig Cilantro (coriander) (optional topping)


1. Shortcut method: Place the oats, plant milk, water, salt, and pepper into a small bowl or saucepan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

2. In the morning, bring oats to a boil in a small saucepan. When they're boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer, put the baby spinach on top of the oats, and cover the saucepan to let the spinach wilt (it'll only take a moment). When the spinach is wilted down, stir it completely into the oats. (Alternately, add the frozen, chopped spinach after you reduce heat to a simmer and proceed with cooking).

3. Add the turmeric. Cook the oats, stirring frequently, until they're thick and creamy. It will only take a couple minutes, since you soaked the oats overnight. Stir in the nutritional yeast, extra salt and/or pepper to taste, and any of the optional toppings/additions you like, along with an extra splash of plant milk if desired. Top with chickpeas and serve.

Slightly longer method:

1. Add the oats, water, plant milk, salt, and pepper to a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
2. Reduce to a simmer and proceed cooking as instructed above. It'll just take a few minutes extra than if you had soaked the oats. Enjoy!
