Make your morning bowl savory instead of sweet, and then pile on the veg. This Tex-Mex-inspired oatmeal gets folate and vitamin K from spinach, protein and fiber from beans, and more nutritional perks—not to mention loads of flavor—from the pico de gallo, scallions, and chile.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place stock and oats in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring often, until oats are tender and mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes. Add spinach; cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in 1 teaspoon of the cumin and ½ teaspoon of the salt. Cover to keep warm.

Step 2

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add bell pepper, onion, and remaining 1 teaspoon cumin and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, stir together beans and pico de gallo in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Step 4

Transfer bell pepper mixture to a plate; wipe skillet clean and return to heat over medium-low. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Crack eggs into skillet; cook to desired degree of doneness, about 4 minutes for over-easy.

Step 5

Divide oat-spinach mixture among 4 bowls; top evenly with bell pepper mixture, bean salsa, and eggs. Sprinkle bowls evenly with scallions, jalapeño slices, and black pepper. Serve hot.
