A little while ago Shelby said we should eat more oatmeal. She's a fan of the steel cut oat variety and will make a batch ahead of time and eat portions over a couple of days. After making some one day she said we should try to make a dinner with it. I said, "Sure."
So we did.
One version of the oatmeal I made was with some sauteed garlic, onion and thyme. I topped it with some green bell pepper, mushrooms, tomatoes and more onion. It's easy, toss it all in a pan. After a couple of minutes scoop in some oatmeal and mix it together.
The finished product can look and include whatever you like. I'm a believer that if you put garlic and onion on something it'll taste good, no matter what it is!
We still had some oatmeal so tried something else. This one included garlic, onions, and mushrooms again but also a dollop of yellow miso. I mixed it all together, topped it off with some more mushrooms chive, and a soft fried egg. This ended up being Shelby's favorite.
The miso was perfect with the slightly sweet steel-cut oats. I've tried a few more recipes too, I think I'll get them written up. I recently made a couple with some shrimp too. Stay tuned!
