Recipe by Megan Horsley
Quick, satiating meals are key for postpartum recovery but so are nourishing ingredients. This Savoury Postpartum Oatmeal is full of healing ingredients like bone broth and miso, as well as lactation support from the oats. Mamas and newborns need lots of dietary fat and this meal offers a great supply of healthy fatty acids from the eggs, olive oil and avocado. Keep this recipe in your back pocket for a nourishing and satisfying quick breakfast option.
Add the oats, bone broth and water to a small pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, whisk in the miso paste and reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cover the pot and let cook for 5-8 minutes until the oats are tender. Add the spinach on top of the oats, cover and cook in the final minute of cooking.
When the oats are cooked, scoop them into a bowl and top with cooked spinach, eggs, avocado, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes and a drizzle of the olive oil.
Substitutions: Substitutions & Options to Omit: No spinach? Use any dark leafy greens. Vegan? Omit the bone broth and use vegetable broth. Omit the eggs and add in ½ cup of chickpeas when cooking the spinach.
