Savory Steel-Cut oats

It's obvious how much I love sweets. I never thought that I'd like savory oats this much! They're SOOOO good. I thought it's going to taste weird since I'm used to my oats being sweet. But no. This recipe was flavorful and satisfying beyond words. 

I've wanted to share it for while but you know life. So here it is finally. 

Let me know if the comments below what's your favorite way to eat oats! I'd love to know.
