Oatmeal with Celery: A Crunchy Breakfast Treat

Another winner from my favorite food columnist, Mark Bittman: oatmeal with chopped celery, flavored with a few splashes of soy sauce and sesame seed oil. I tried it for myself and it was delicious! See the results below.

I cooked the oatmeal and celery together to soften the celery and lock in flavor (Bittman's suggestion)

Add a few dashes of soy sauce and sesame seed oil…

And you have a hearty and may I say quite tasty breakfast, lunch or dinner!

      Thanks, Kara! One of my favorite comments on Mark Bittman’s article on this recipe was the following: “This looks disgusting. I can’t wait to try it!” It’s definitely an odd combo of flavors but I can vouch for its tastiness quotient. 🙂

    Looks yummy! Is that raw celery or you cook it with the oatmeal?

      I cooked it with the oatmeal but you don’t have to. I later tried inserting the celery in after I cooked the oatmeal and it was also tasty!

  1. […] Grains at the ready. I’m not as good about using healthy grains as I should be, but I’m on the right path. Bittman suggests making a batch of grains in advance, so you can pop them into a meal quickly and easily without all the prep time. This oatmeal is delicious, and has been great for both breakfast and a late-night dinner. […]
