Health conscious rejoice! This recipe combines super-foods, super fast, in a tasty way. When you eat it don't think oatmeal...think your favorite Japanese rice bowl, just with a nuttier grain. That's what the flavor reminded me of, and I'll be whipping these up often, for sure.

Saw numerous savory oatmeal recipes, which inspired me to experiment, and this is a keeper. :) My son gobbled it up saying it was very good.
