These healthy bowls are inspired by turmeric-based golden milk. They’re bright, beautiful, nourishing, healthy and completely vegan and gluten-free. Enjoy the oats on their own, try them with tempeh, avocado and kale or customize the toppings as needed.



For the Golden Turmeric Oatmeal

Oatmeal Bowl Toppings


  1. Cook the Oats. To make the oats, add the oatmeal ingredients to a small pan and cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Cook the tempeh and kale. I did this in one skillet with the kale on half and the tempeh on the other half. I left the pan dry and just a added a few drops of water to the kale. The tempeh just needs to be crisped and the kale just needs a few minutes to wilt and darken.
  3. Prepare the bowls. Scoop the cooked oats into a bowl and top with the kale, tempeh, avocado, tahini and nutritional yeast. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and if desired, sea salt and pepper.
