Savory Overnight Oats

Author Notes:

Overnight oats aren't just for breakfast. In this savory take, you marinate the vegetables (in this case asparagus - but green beans work too) in a separate container overnight while your oats are doing their thing. Mix them together and you have yourself a lunch that will make your office mates jealous.
