Cheesy Oatmeal Bowl With Fried Egg

Ingredients:

1/4 cup dry quick­cooking steel cut oats
3/4 cup water
salt and pepper
2 TBS (15g) shredded white cheddar cheese (add more if you like)
1 tsp coconut oil, divided
1/4 cup diced red peppers
2 TBS finely chopped onions
1 large egg
chopped walnuts
sliced green onions


Directions:

Stove Top Method: (to cook the oatmeal)
Bring water to boil. Add oatmeal, reduce the heat a little and let it cook for about 3 minutes until all liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat and stir in cheese, a small pinch of salt, and pepper.

Microwave Method*: (to cook the oatmeal)
Place oats and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Line microwave dish with paper towels to catch any spills. Microwave at a high setting (but not the highest, about 8/10 power setting) at one-minute intervals for a total of 3 minutes. If you want a softer texture, continue microwaving at 30­second intervals. Give the oats a little stir between intervals. When the oatmeal is done, stir in shredded cheese, a small pinch of salt, and pepper.

Heat a non­stick pan with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil over medium­ high heat. Add vegetables and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until they soften. Spoon vegetables over cooked oats. Reduce heat to medium.

Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oil and fry the egg. Cook until the whites are no longer translucent and serve over oatmeal.
