It turns out that’s not an original idea. I got thousands of hits when I googled savory oatmeal. It looked like you could use anything you like, essentially substituting oatmeal for rice, potatoes, pasta, couscous… Cool. What did I have on hand?
This evening I sautéed a bit of onion, a handful of mushrooms, and half a zucchini in garlic butter, tossed in some leftover pork roast, a little salt and pepper, and some splashes of Vietnamese fish sauce.
I make my oatmeal with less water than recommended because I don’t like it runny. It’s about the consistency of sticky rice.
It certainly looked good.
I only like oatmeal as oatmeal raisin cookies. :)ReplyDelete
I use oatmeal for "filler" frequently when I run short of an ingredient for a meal. It is nice that I really like oatmeal anyway. That food looked very inviting. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Mom used to add oatmeal to meatloaf.Delete
I had forgotten that happened in my early life also. I liked it.Delete
I've been practicing avoiding sweets for breakfast for some time now. One of my favorite breakfasts is eggs and a big green salad. Another is hot tomato soup with a couple of eggs broken into it - the eggs are sorta poached.ReplyDelete
I'll have to try the oatmeal thing!
A lot of the recipes I saw online feature eggs.Delete
