Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan bring broth to boiling. Stir in oats. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until oats are tender and mixture is thickened and creamy.*

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. In a shallow baking pan toss broccolini with 1 tablespoon of the oil and a little salt and pepper. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender and starting to brown, stirring once.

  • In a large skillet heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add sweet peppers and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender and starting to brown.

  • Stir cheese into oat mixture until melted and creamy. Stir in pepper mixture, ham, wheat germ, and parsley. Spoon into a serving dish. Top with broccolini.


At this point you can transfer the oats to an airtight container, cover, and chill overnight. Reheat in the saucepan, covered, with 1/4 cup water and continue with step 2.
