Savory Porridge

This is my new quick take on savory oatmeal. My son has been asking for this for breakfast and is perfect for when you want something warm and comforting on those cold mornings. For my previous savory oatmeal recipe, go to

This recipe is versatile so you can add different vegetables or other sides to this dish. To make this recipe, you need quick oats, chicken bouillon, egg, and butter. I also add hemp seeds for extra nutrition.

Begin by cooking your oatmeal as usual with some water. When the oatmeal begins to thicken, add in your frozen veggies, and hemp seeds. You can also add a bit of butter to make this more creamy. To flavor this add some chicken bouillon (or vegetable bouillon). When the oatmeal is almost done, add your egg and stir slowly. This just adds a bit more protein and fat but also makes the oatmeal extra creamy. The slower you mix the egg, the more chunks you will get. If you want a smoother mixture, mix in the egg quickly.

You can store any leftovers in the fridge and heat up the next day. I have tried adding other additions such as tofu, kale and broccoli and they all turn out great.

Savory Porridge/Oatmeal

  • 1/3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup water (more or less depending on your preference)
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon (or veggie)
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
  • 1/3 cup peas and corn (frozen)
  • 1 egg
  • butter

Begin by cooking your oatmeal in water on medium heat. When the oats start to thicken (about 3-5 minutes) add the peas and corn, hemp seeds, chicken bouillon, and butter. Stir until everything heats up (another 3-5 minutes).

When the oats starts to bubble, add in the egg. Stir in slowly to allow some solid chunks of egg, otherwise, mix in well to get a smooth thick oatmeal.

Adjust seasonings to taste.

Other optional toppings could be tofu, broccoli, kale, carrots.
