Savory Mexican Style Steel Cut Oats

Sometimes I just want a spicy, savory bowl of oatmeal in the morning.


Serves 3


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cooked black beans
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 veggie sausage
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups water
  • splash olive oil


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeno, corn, veggie sausage, beans and bell pepper. Let cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Toss in the steel cut oats, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper, bay leaves, and water. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add the nutritional yeast, cover and turn the heat down to a simmer.
  4. Let simmer for 20 minutes or until the oats are cooked and the sauce has thickened.
  5. Pour into a bowl and enjoy with salsa or any other topping you’d like!
