Avocado & Kale Savory Oatmeal is the perfect way to start your day. Hearty oatmeal is topped with avocado, garlicky kale, hummus and aleppo pepper for a protein-packed breakfast.



  • 1/2 cup Hodgson Mill steel cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups kale thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 1/2 avocado thinly sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons hummus
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Aleppo pepper for topping


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring water to a boil. Add oats and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until desired consistency.
  2. As the oats are finishing, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large, wide pot. Add in the garlic, cooking for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add the chopped kale and stir to coat with the garlic. Add in 1/4 cup of water, cover, and let kale cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Once done, remove kale from heat and toss kale with lemon juice and a pinch of salt. 

  3. Bring a second pot of water to a boil. With a spoon, stir the water in a circular motion to create a tornado effect. Crack in the two eggs and cook for 2 ½ - 3 minutes. (Or use an egg poacher.) Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the pot.
  4. Top cooked oatmeal with kale, egg, avocado, hummus, salt and aleppo pepper.
