Oats can be enjoyed in many different ways and this savory zucchini oats recipe is a great example of that. The oats are cooked in an umami-rich soy sauce and vegetable broth, seasoned with earthy white pepper and garlic and finished off with nutty sesame oil and seeds. Green peas offer protein and grape tomatoes are a good source of fiber.
A few notes:
- If the oats start to dry out when you’re cooking them, add a little bit more water (1/4 cup) for a looser consistency.
- Alternatively, instant oats can be used instead of rolled oats for an even quicker version. Reduce the simmer time from 5 minutes to 2-3 minutes.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Best enjoyed fresh.
