Oatmeal with "Bacon"

Recipe from Ashley Smith

Serves: 2
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1½ tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon hummus, plus more for topping
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • Dash of ground cayenne pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1-2 cups kale, stems removed, chopped
  • ½ cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar or maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 4 ounces tempeh, thinly sliced
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  1. In a small saucepan, add water; bring to a boil. Add the oats; reduce heat to simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in the nutritional yeast, hummus, salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and cayenne pepper. Divide into two bowls.
  2. While the oats are cooking, heat a little olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chopped kale and stir; cook until slightly wilted, about 5-7 minutes. Add black beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook for 1 more minute. Top each bowl of oatmeal with half the mixture.
  3. In a plate or shallow bowl, add soy sauce, hot sauce, olive oil, agave, liquid smoke, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon pepper; mix well. Add sliced tempeh in the marinade. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes.
  4. In the same skillet over medium heat, warm a little oil. Add tempeh to the pan, cooking in two batches if necessary. Cook tempeh until slightly charred, about 3 minutes; flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Top oatmeal with tempeh, ¼ avocado each, and additional hummus (optional).
