Instructions

  1. Add 1/2 tsp olive oil to a pan and roast your oats till they're a light brownish in color

  2. On the side, heat a pan with 3/4th cup water until it's slightly boiling. Add water slowly to the pan with roasted oats. Be careful as the water might splatter

  3. Keep mixing the oats till you have a semi-solid mixture. The consistency is your choice. Leave it longer for a thicker mixture.
  4. Pour into a bowl and add your vegetables and poached egg (optional)

  5. Add salt to taste with some black pepper, paprika, chilli flakes and oregano

Recipe Notes

The recipe lists quantities enough for 1 serving. Double them for 2 servings, triple for 3 and so on.

Suggested vegetables: You can use mushrooms, broccoli, bell peppers, potatoes. Either boil the veggies or sauté them. I sauteed mine with some rosemary leaves which really helped enhance the flavor.

Would you just look at that? How appealing does that egg yolk look? Eggs make a great addition to any dish. You can have them scrambled, boiled, poached or with the sunny side up.

Let me know how you like your eggs? 🙂
