Savory Oatmeal With Cheddar and Fried Egg

READY IN: 13mins
YIELD: 1 bowl




  • Bring water to boil. Add oatmeal, reduce heat a little and let it cook for about 3 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat and stir in cheese, a small pinch of salt, and pepper.
  • When the oatmeal is done, stir in shredded cheese, a small pinch of salt, and pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick pan with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add vegetables and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until they soften. Spoon vegetables over cooked oats. Reduce heat to medium.
  • Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oil and fry egg. Cook until the whites are no longer translucent and serve over oatmeal.
  • Top with chopped walnuts, green onions, and za'atar, if you like.
  • Notes.
  • *Different brands of oatmeal may have different cooking times for the microwave method. Check the packaging for instructions.
  • If you want an even lighter meal, use coconut oil spray instead of coconut oil.
  • If you have any leftover cooked vegetables from the day before, just add them to your oatmeal.
