Creamy Brussels Sprouts & Broccoli Oatmeal

Usually my oatmeal combinations are on the sweet side- peanut butter and preserves oatmeal, chocolate chip oatmeal, fruit infused oatmeal, brown sugar oatmeal...
Yet lately, ever since using this ingredient in making burgers, it seemed a great idea to turn oatmeal into a savory dinner dish.

Creamy Brussels Sprouts & Broccoli Oatmeal Ingredients

1 12 oz package Brussels Sprouts
2 cups of broccoli
2 cups rolled oats
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

Bring Brussels Sprouts & broccoli to a boil in about 2 1/2 cups water.
Dtrain the vegetable water directly into bowl of oats, stirring as it cooks.
Chop up the Brussels sprouts.
Add veggies to the cooked oatmeal.
Spice it up!
It turned out amazing.
A surprisingly superb flavor, the warm, vegetable infused oatmeal's consistency a cross between buttery mashed potatoes and mushy brown rice, it was a delicious experience good for anytime of the day. 
With little time to prepare- under 12 minutes, I highly recommend it, but will add chopped red onions, fresh herbs, and a pinch of unsweetened soy milk to make it even more yummy.

The leftovers were even still creamy. Sprinkled a bit more turmeric on top for the perfect yum!
