How to make a savory oatmeal recipe

Yes, savory oatmeal. Certainly not as common as the typical sweetened-to-death oatmeal, savory oatmeal is a great alternative if you’re looking to reduce sugar in your diet.

To show you how simple it is, here’s a short video of the most basic savory oatmeal recipe from my book, Fearless Broths and Soups.
