"By adding in unusual ingredients like cilantro, soy sauce, and tofu, oatmeal can be transformed into a bowl of comforting gooey, creamy mess packed with tons of Asian flavors and many good-for-you nutrients," says Stephanie Chung, who posts at A Nutritious Plate.
3 ounces silken tofu
1/4 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup edamame
1/4 cup peas
3/4 cup cooked steel-cut oats
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro leaves
1 egg, well beaten
2 tablespoons chopped scallions
Soy sauce to taste (optional)
Add first six ingredients to a small pan over high heat, stirring well and breaking tofu into chunks. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to simmer until tofu is heated thoroughly, about 5 minutes. (Add water if mixture gets too thick.) Slowly pour in egg while slowly stirring and bring mixture to a boil again. Remove from heat and stir in scallions. Serve with splash of soy sauce, if desired.
