Turmeric Cumin Oats w/ Lemony Avocado Cream

I gave you a sweet breakfast in my last post, but today I have a savory breakfast idea. Made with a small list of wholesome and clean ingredients and can be put together in no time. There is a lot of buzz around turmeric these days, but that is not something new to Indian cuisine. Indian cuisine uses turmeric in pretty much everything. Here, I am just adding a dash of Indian flavors to the simple, everyday oatmeal. 



Ingredients:
  • Thick rolled oats - 1 cup (optionally soaked overnight)
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Sea salt - as per taste
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Directions:
  • Start boiling oats in 2 cups of water, salt and turmeric powder. Cook till well done.
  • Toast cumin seeds in a small pan and mix with the cooked oats.
  • Serve warm with a dollop of lemon avocado cream.
  • Makes about 3 servings. Enjoy!!

Lemon Avocado Cream:
  • Avocado - 2
  • Lemon juice - from half a lemon
  • Green chilly minced - 1-2 (optional as per taste) 
  • Sea salt - as per taste
  • Cilantro chopped - 1/4 cup (substitute with your preferred chopped herbs)

Directions:
  • Take out meat from avocado and mash with the back of a fork. Mix remaining ingredients and whisk till creamy.
  • Enjoy!!
