Spicy Oats

Spicy oats is a very delicious quick meal. In times when you are in hurry or not feeling to cook much then this serves as a full meal. As for me after all those festive hustle bustle and lots of cooking different types of delicacies, I am bit tired and want to try out something simple but with good nutritional benefits and which take hardly 10 minutes to cook. Spicy oats have it all and  also this food is low in saturated fats, Cholesterol and Sodium. Oats is also good source of dietary fiber, Thiamin, Magnesium. This dish may not look so appetizing but sometimes a normal looking dish can be very satisfying specially during fall nights. I am sure you will love simple spicy oats.
