LEMON BROCCOLI OATMEAL- Vegan, Gluten-Free & Oil-Free

I had the strangest co-occurring cravings the other day. Half of me wanted oatmeal and the other half wanted broccoli. Weird, I know. I never thought I would crave broccoli and oatmeal at the same time. But I did, so I created this:

Lemon Broccoli Oatmeal

A hearty bowl of oatmeal is made even more nutritious with the addition of a green veggie! Broccoli is high in fiber and vitamin C. It’s also got vitamin A, calcium, iron and don’t forget about the protein. Just 1 cup of broccoli has 3 grams of protein! Broccoli is basically your bodies best friend. No wonder I was craving it 🙂

Lemon Broccoli Oatmeal

Creamy tahini oatmeal that’s spotted with nutrient dense broccoli, drizzled with fresh lemon juice and sprinkled with sesame seeds. 

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp tahini (sesame seed butter)
  • 1 cup broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

Instructions:

  1. Add rolled oats and water to a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 7-10 minutes, or until desired oatmeal consistancy is reached.
  2. Meanwhile, add broccoli florets to a frying pan with a splash of water. Saute over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, or until the broccoli turns bright green. Drizzle lemon juice over broccoli.
  3. Stir tahini into the cooked oatmeal and mix until well combined.
  4. Add the cooked broccoli florets and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Crab a spoon and dig in 🙂
