Equipment

  • Medium pot
  • Chef knife

Ingredients
 

  • 1 tsp olive oil ($0.04)
  • medium red onion ($0.08)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic ($0.04)
  • 1 cup rolled oats, dry ($0.19)
  • ½ cup split red lentils, dry ($0.26)
  • 3 ½ cups water or vegetable broth ($0.87)
  • Salt & pepper to taste ($0.02)

Garnishes optional

  • Hummus
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Salsa
  • Sliced green onion
  • Crackers
  • Hot sauce of choice
  • Avocado slices

Instructions
 

  • To start, heat 1 tsp olive oil in a medium pot over low-medium. Then, add in the diced red onion and minced garlic, sautéing both for 1-2 minutes.
  • Next, add in the rolled oats, rinsed red lentils, veggie broth or water, and stir. Bring everything to a low boil, then turn the heat down, cover, and simmer for about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. You'll know it's ready when the lentils are soft, but not too mushy.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, stir, and remove your pot from the heat. Divide between bowls, and top with your choice of garnishes. If you are prepping this ahead of time, let the oat mixture cool completely before transferring it to the fridge in an airtight container.
