Ingredients

Pesto: 

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts or nut of choice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Hodgson Mills Oat Bran Cereal
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 ounces baby spinach leaves
  • 1 large ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning, for garnish (I get mine at Trader Joe’s)

Instructions

  1. Make the pesto: Add the basil, nuts, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and a pinch of salt to a food processor and pulse until a loose paste forms. With the motor on, add the olive oil. Then, add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. Set aside.
  2. Make the cereal: Place the oat bran, 2 cups water and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 1-2 minutes until hot.
  3. Make the spinach: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and the garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds until just fragrant. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt/pepper.
  4. Assemble the bowls: Divide the oat bran into two bowls, top each with a spoonful of pesto and 1/2 of the spinach. Thinly slice the avocado and divide into the two bowls. Sprinkle with Everything Bagel Seasoning and eat hot.
