The perfect way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers, this vegan sweet potato oatmeal is topped with cranberry sauce and perfect for prepping ahead!


  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  1. To prepare the steel cut oats: Combine the steel cut oats, water, and salt in a saucepan over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium-low heat, keeping the oats to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, depending on how chewy you want the oats. 
  2. After oats have cooked, stir in the cinnamon and ginger. Add in the cooked sweet potato and combine until smooth and sweet potato is stirred in. 
  3. Top with cranberry sauce and maple syrup. Serve immediately.
