If I could describe this bowl, I would say it's savory, clean, and flavorful. It is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's light and packed with nutrients- and I feel totally energized for hours after devouring a hearty bowl.
There is something about eggs coupled with tomatoes and avocado that just gets me allllll excited lol. And I know what you might be thinking: oatmeal without sugar and butter? Yup, this is way better.
Try it for your next meal. I guarantee you'll love it too!
Start by boiling water in a stockpot (I use a stock pot because oats can be temperamental and sometimes overflows).
While your water comes to a boil, coat a small skillet with your butter. Turn the temperature on high. Once you see little bubble in the butter, pour the steel cut oats into the skillet. Toss and turn for 2-3 minutes in order to toast the oats. Then pour the oats into your boiling water.
Give one good stir to the oats and reduce the heat to low and cover. Let your oats simmer for 10 minutes.
*NOTE: By this point, your oats should be soft and pliable.
After 10 minutes, add your almond milk and stir your oats. Make sure to scrap the bottom of the pot while you stir to keep the oats from sticking and burning. Cover and let simmer for 10 more minutes. Stir frequently and taste. You're oats will be done when all the liquid has been absorbed.
Remove the oats from heat, and leave covered.
It's time to fry some bacon!!!! In a skillet, place your bacon stripes flat. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes. I prefer extra crispy bacon, so I cook my bacon on high heat- 2 minutes on each side.
Once finished, place the bacon on a plate covered with a paper towel.
Now, in the same pain that you prepared your bacon, crack open two eggs to fry them. Make sure the pan is hot so the eggs stay in place once they hit the pan. Then turn your heat to low and cover.
How long should you fry an egg? It's the chef's choice! I prefer well-done eggs with just a little runny yolk. To achieve the same style, cook for 1-2 minutes covered. You'll know when the egg is ready because the whites will be solid and bubbly, and the yolk will be slightly solid.
Finally, build your bowl! Add slices of avocado, tomato, and turkey bacon. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and parsley. Make this recipe your own by substituting your favorite veggies. What would you put into your bowl?
