Meatless Monday Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

It’s a brisk fall morning here in sunny California, which means I’m trading in my morning smoothie for a nice warm bowl of oatmeal! Since you all know how much I LOVE to cook with pumpkin, I wanted to experiment with a little pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice to come up with a nice Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal recipe for Meatless Monday.

This recipe is super easy and took only 5 minutes to make. Pumpkin is nutrient-rich — a cup of pumpkin contains 200% of the RDA of Vitamin A, which keeps your vision sharp — so it makes a great addition to oatmeal!
