Savory Pizza Oat Bran

Pizza oat bran

What's that you see? This couldn't be another post about a recent venture into Oat Bran Land, could it?! Yep, I'm continuing to explore the uncharted territory of oat bowls -- and my boldness is growing.

This lunch bowl of oat bran is a prime example. After the Best Husband Ever indulged in some pizza this weekend, that's all my tastebuds craved. So I gave in, healthy-style, and savory pizza oat bran was born. I was surprised by how satisfying and filling this bowl was. Dare to try it out yourself?

Savory Pizza Oat Bran

1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup tomato sauce
garlic, basil, and oregano to taste
1 cup water
1/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese

Place all the ingredients except for the cheese in a saucepan and set it over medium-high heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken and bubble. Continue to cook and stir until your desired consistency is reached, then serve and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Serves 1.

    I haven't made a leap into savory oats yet. This is very tempting! Is there anything the almighty oat can't do?

  2. WOW - this may be one of the best looking food combinations I have seen in a while... GENIUS.:)

  3. I never thought oat bran could ever look this appealing...but you say pizza and I'm in!
