Cheesy Steel Cut Oats


1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 cup celery
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika or chipotle chili powder
1 cup  1/2 inch diced sweet potato raw
3 1/2 cups vegetable stock, or 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock plus 1 cup unsweetened nondairy milk.  (I used the milk, and it made it really creamy.)
1 Tbls tamari (I used soy sauce)
1 cup steel cut oats
2 cups chopped greens of your choice, such as kale, card, or collards
2 Tbls nutritional yeast
1-2 Tbls mellow white or other miso
2-3 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 sliced scallions
2 Tbls chopped fresh herbs (I used cilantro)


Heat a stovetop pressure cooker over medium heat or set an electric cooker to saute.  Add the onion, carrot, celery and dry saute for 3 minutes.  Add the garlic, pepper, and paprika and cook another minute.

add the sweet potato, stock or stock and milk, and tamari or soy sauce.  Stir.  Add the oats and stir once.

Lock the lid.  Bring to a high pressure; cook for 3 minutes.  Let the pressure come down naturally. Quick release any remaining pressure after 20 minutes.  Remove the lid, carefully.  Don't get burned!

Add the greens and yeast.  Stir once.  Lock the lid back on the cooker.  Let sit for 3 minutes.

Open the cooker and add the miso, lemon juice, and scallion and herbs.
