Savory Miso Oatmeal with Bone Broth, Egg, and Tofu
When you make breakfast oats, you probably reach for fresh and sweet ingredients, such as almond milk, berries, maple syrup, cinnamon, and banana. But that can be exciting for only so long, right? When it’s time for a change, we like to do the exact opposite and add savory ingredients to our oats instead.
Eggs, bone broth, shredded chicken, beef, tofu, lentils, sweet potatoes—even unexpected steamed vegetables—can make an addictive, comforting, protein-packed, savory oatmeal. Give this method a try, and you’ll wonder why you hadn’t tried it sooner.
What Does Savory Oatmeal Go With?
At first, it might feel counterintuitive making a savory oatmeal. So how do you do it? We have a “formula” for making it perfectly every time. All you need are these three simple ingredients to make the base:
- Kettle & Fire Bone Broth (any flavor)
- Beaten eggs
Once you’ve got these three ingredients ready to go, the topping options are endless. Raid your fridge and see what you can find. Don’t be shy to experiment with herbs and spices. Cumin, turmeric, black pepper, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and basil can really help the flavors of the proteins and vegetables pop.
If you’re craving some extra brain power for a busy day ahead, you can also add a healthy fat topping, such as hemp hearts, flaxseed, chia seeds, sliced avocado, MCT oil, or chopped nuts.
For this recipe, we decided to create a Japanese-themed miso oatmeal by adding miso paste, tofu, and seaweed. The result? A truly delicious, warming breakfast to keep you full and energized until lunch time. Let’s get to the recipe.
