A MUST TRY savory oatmeal recipe that is vegan, gluten-free and jam packed with flavor! sweetsimplevegan.comWe all know and love the traditional sweet flavors of oatmeal paired with cinnamon, maple syrup, fruits, and nuts, but have you ever had savory oatmeal? As a guy who prefers savory over sweet, the idea of this was right up my alley.

Instead of all the sweet fixings mentioned above, we loaded these oats up with celery, shallots, carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, and seasoned them to perfection. We also went a little crazy and topped them with vegan sausage and avocado—but how could you blame us?

Savory Veggie & Sausage Oatmeal {vegan & gluten-free)

  • Author: Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 2


A savory take on a breakfast classic, we are taking oatmeal to the next level with seasonal veggies, fresh herbs and spices, and a lot of love.


  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet potato, diced small
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, chopped
  • 1/4 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • 2 vegan sausages, sliced (we used Field Roast Italian)
  • Green onions or chives
  • ½ avocado, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons roasted & shelled pumpkin seeds
  • Smoked paprika


  1. In a medium pot, add in the celery, shallot, garlic, and sweet potato along with about 2 tablespoons of the water. Sauté until the sweet potato has softened and the onions are translucent, about 6-8 minutes, adding more water as needed to prevent burning.
  2. Add in the oats, remaining water, grated carrot and kale, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, stirring often, until the oatmeal has cooked down and thickened, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. If using vegan sausage, prepare it as the oatmeal cooks. Simply add the slices into a small pan over medium heat and cook until warmed through, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Once the oatmeal is done, stir in the nutritional yeast, rosemary, and green peas. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer the oatmeal to individual serving bowls and add toppings of choice. Serve warm.

    What a yummy recipe! I have never tried savory oatmeal, and I think I should, hehehe! Anyways, I cannot believe this recipe is SO SO high in protein. I bet that the sausage tastes splendidly with the creamy and spicy oats!
