I love avocado. In fact, I think a touch of avocado on anything, yes anything, makes the dish better. I also think that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and although I LOVE making pancakes on the regular, it’s nice to mix it up with some healthier meals too. Oatmeal is simple and easy to make, but often times can be a bit boring unless you drown it in syrup or overdo it with toppings. Insert the avocado. A delicious, healthy way to give your oatmeal some flavor. Yes, you can be simple and lay some sliced avocado on top of your oatmeal, but I like to make avocado sauce, and mix the sauce in with the oatmeal!
What You’ll Need:
For the Sauce:
1 sprig of parsley
Juice of 1 lime
¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
For the Oatmeal:
2/3 cup gluten-free oats
1 1/3 cup water
What You’ll Do:
For the Avocado Sauce
- Blend mashed avocado, olive oil, and lime juice in a food processor.
For the Oatmeal
- Boil 1 1/3 cup of water. Add in GF oatmeal. Cook for 10-12 minutes and stir intermittently.
- When the oatmeal is ready, pour in your sauce and garnish with parsley!
- Lastly, top off your oatmeal with flavors of your choosing. I like strawberries, pecans, walnuts, raisins, and gluten-free/vegan chocolate chips!
I know what you’re thinking… this dish isn’t the prettiest. But no one ever said that pretty and tasty always have to go hand in hand! This dish is gluten-free AND vegan… not to mention so easy to make!
