A classic Italian culinary trio is tomato, basil and mozzarella. You’ve likely enjoyed this trio in the form of a salad, sandwich, pasta or pizza but how about in oatmeal? Recipe and image courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 2

  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese Part-skim
  • 12 oz cherry tomato(s)
  • 3 tbsp Basil, Fresh
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

DIRECTIONS

1 Bring the broth, garlic, and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to medium, add the oats, and stir until fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Add the cheese and stir until melted, about 1 minute.
2 Remove from heat and stir in three-quarters of the cherry tomatoes (or grape tomatoes) and all the basil.
3 Transfer to bowls, top with the remaining tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil, and serve.
