I'm often looking for easy ways to add more protein and nutrients to oatmeal. I was first turned on to mixing eggs into oatmeal from a comment a LIVESTRONG.COM reader left on one of my recent blog posts. The reader's comment said that adding an egg makes the oats fluffier. She was right! The egg gives them a fluffier texture while at the same time increasing the protein and nutritional content. If you like things spicy (like I do!) you can add a tablespoon of Sriracha sauce.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 1/2 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Hot Chili Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper, Black
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt

DIRECTIONS

1 Boil water in pan on stove top, and cook oatmeal according to package.
2 When oatmeal is a few minutes away from being ready, crack and stir in one egg.
3 Stir in tamari or soy sauce, chia seeds, and Sriracha sauce (if you like things spicy!), and salt and pepper to your taste.
4 Put salt and pepper on top, and enjoy!
