Rather than fruit and sugar, vegetables and sea salt are keys to this trendier take on hot cereal. Recipe + image courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.



1. Bring the water, bell peppers, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper to a boil in a large saucepan.

2. Stir in the oats and scallions and reduce heat to medium. Cook, while stirring, until the oats are fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the dill and olive oil.

3. Transfer oatmeal to four (2-cup capacity) freezer- and microwave-safe bowls. Cover well and freeze.
4. To enjoy one bowl, uncover and top the bowl with unbleached parchment paper or paper towel.
Microwave on HI for 3 1/2 minutes and stir. Microwave until done, about 1 1/2 minutes more. Microwave times vary. Adjust seasoning. Sprinkle with goat cheese (or cashew cheese), if using. (Hint: If desired, garnish with additional fresh dill at the table.)
