This savory side dish is packed with delicious cheese -- but it's super low in calories! Using oats instead of pasta cuts down the calories and adds in fiber. Using reduced-fat cheese is also a great way to cut down on fat without sacrificing the flavor. So bring on the carb cravings and give this yummy oat dish a try. 


  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1 dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 2 tsp light whipped butter or light buttery spread
  • 2 tbsp chopped scallions
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • dash of black pepper


1. In a medium pot, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil.

2. Add oats and a dash of salt, and return to boil.


3. Reduce to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 40 minutes, or until thickened.


4. Add remaining ingredients, including remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.


5. Cook and stir until butter and cheese have melted and entire dish is uniform, about one minute.
