Full Recipe:

Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups shredded zucchini (about 1 medium-sized zucchini)
2 cups plant-based milk (such as almond, soy, or oat milk)
1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar (optional, for sweetness)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
A pinch of salt
Toppings: Fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, or a drizzle of plant-based yogurt (optional)
Instructions:
Prepare Zucchini:
Shred the zucchini using a grater. If the zucchini releases excess moisture, you can gently squeeze it or pat it dry with a clean kitchen towel.
Combine Ingredients:
In a saucepan, combine rolled oats, shredded zucchini, plant-based milk, maple syrup or agave nectar (if using), vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
Cook Oatmeal:
Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
Simmer and Stir:
Once the oatmeal begins to simmer, reduce the heat to low and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for about 5-7 minutes or until the oats are tender and the mixture reaches your desired consistency.
Adjust Sweetness:
Taste the oatmeal and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more maple syrup or agave nectar.
Serve:
Remove the Vegan Zucchini Oatmeal from heat. Spoon it into bowls and top with your favorite toppings, such as fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, or a drizzle of plant-based yogurt.
