Hatch Pepper Breakfast

We love Hatch pepper season! These delightful peppers are only available for a short time each year.  Look for them at your market today! Great flavor and a little heat make them perfect for so many summer dishes! Hatch Pepper Breakfast 2.5 cups water 1/2 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup corn meal (polenta) 1/2 cup roasted green chile salsa 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 1 Hatch pepper diced 1/2 cup lacinato kale shredded 1/2 cup diced tomatoes 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro 2 tablespoons Engine 2 Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Dash of smoked paprika Drizzle of your favorite hot sauce – we love Ninja Squirrel Sriracha! Stir oats, cornmeal and salsa together with water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, then add nutritional yeast, kale and hatch pepper, simmer for 5 minutes or until thick. Serve with tomato, cilantro and hummus, sprinkle on some smoked paprika and add a drizzle of hot sauce. Makes two servings
