when i was a kid, i always had oats with salt instead of sugar. since, i've been diagnosed with celiac disease, but i eat quinoa flakes with nutritional yeast and chopped veggies, with fresh herbs, or i add a scoop in things like chili and curries.

You get use to it. One time I bought some seaweed in a hot sauce. The first time I tried it I could hardly stand to eat a tiny bit of it. A few days latter I was eating it by the mouthful.<br><br><br><br>
Oatmeal is sometimes used as an ingredient in savory bread so if you're into making bread you could use it that way.

I am rather daring in my food and I have prepared a haggis like vegetarian dish using good oatmeal, herbs, vegetable broth and vegetarian hamburger. It tasted pretty good-- . I should probably work on "perfecting" the dish. You could use it as stuffing in peppers or tomatos. It might work.

I like salt and nuts in my oatmeal. I usually do have some dried fruit for sweetness, but I bet it'd taste good if you switched that out for some veggies.

The traditional way to eat it in Scotland is with salt. I forgot that when I was given some in a Scottish hospital once - was expecting nice sweet porridge. Not a good experience...Though it wasn't bad, just unexpected...

I've always eaten Malt-O-Meal with salt and nothing else. Never tried it with oatmeal though. I will now, as I do not like "meals" that are sweet.

You know, you can make oat waffles with oats. You put 2/3 cup of raw cashews (unsalted/unroasted) in a blender, then add 1 cup of water and a tbsp of honey (if you eat it), then blend. Afterwards, stop the blender, then add 3 cups of dry rolled oats, and 3 cups of water slowly and keep blending. When done, make sure the batter is pourable, and either pour it into a waffle iron, or put on a skillet to make pancakes. These are all-natural, vegan, tasty, soft waffles/pancakes. They'll look grey though, but they're good. So basically, the ingredients are <b>raw cashews, rolled oats, water, honey (optional) and that's it.</b> Then, you can top them with whatever you like, hopefully all-natural stuff like raw peanut butter (just peanuts) or all-natural fruit spreads. Or plain i suppose.

To let you know it always helps to cook the oatmeal with about 1/4 less water so it is drier and less soup like and add 2tsp salt before cooking. Once the oatmeal is made the sky is the limit!<br><br><br><br>
I actually just tried this mexican version today (I live in a dorm room and this is the only things I had on hand and I have to eat! but it was pretty damn good!) Make a two person serving. Stir in One can of black beans (or can subsitute any other bean that can hold it's shape), half a cup of jalapenos, and a cup of mushrooms. Then season to taste with chili powder (i used about 2 tbsp) tumeric (1/2 tbsp) salt and pepper.<br><br><br><br>
It was fantastic hot and even better once the flavors got a chance to meld together..HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
