Vegan MoFo: Day 2

Well, shame on me.  It is day two of Vegan MoFo and I still haven't gone grocery shopping.  So let me tell you what a broke and lazy college kid eats when it's once again too hot to cook anything elaborate and he actually hates salad.  Noochy garlicky savoury oatmeal.

This probably wins the prize for ugliest thing I have ever eaten on a regular basis, but it tastes awesome in a junky comfort food kind of way, so don't judge.  I make this all the time when I'm broke or busy or just plain lazy.  I sauté half an onion or a couple of cloves of garlic, chopped in a pot.  Then take half a cup of quick cooking steel cut oats (the Trader Joe's kind) and cook it in 2 cups of water in the same pot with a few splashes of apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and vegan worcestershire until it's a kind of gross soupy mixture.  Then I add 1/8-1/4 cup of nutritional yeast and pour the entire mess over a large handful of spinach.

I'm sure you can all imagine how disgusting this looks about now, but let me provide you with a photograph anyway.  It's surprisingly good for being what amounts to my equivalent of living on ramen.
