"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Combine the oats and grated carrot in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cups water. (Use more or less to achieve desired consistency; 1 cups water yields a fairly thick oatmeal.)
Heat until simmering, then cook, stirring often, until everything is tender, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the kale, salsa, and nutritional yeast.
Transfer to individual serving bowls and top each with avocado and pumpkin seeds. Sprinkle with smoked paprika and pepper flakes, if using. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
Variation: Swap in different flavors of salsas or pasta sauces to turn this into a whole new dish.
