I thought I would share with you a super easy and quick recipe that you can make for breakfast,lunch,dinner or a snack.
When you think of oatmeal, you usually think of berries,diced apples,cinnamon and brown sugar, but oatmeal doesn’t always have to be sweet!
This recipe is literally just oats and an egg and whatever toppings or garnishes you desire!
If you’re chinese or Cantonese you may be familiar with the soupy rice porridge, congee. This is the healthier and faster copycat version.
Savoury Oatmeal(serves 1)
-1/2 cup oats(I used old-fashioned or large flake)
-1 cup water
-soy sauce or other garnishes such as crispy dried onions, green onion(scallion), salt/pepper,seaweed,or bonito flakes (optional)
1.Place your oats and water in a small or medium pot and bring to a boil then to simmer
2.Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the oats are cooked. Stir and taste along the way for your desired consistancy.Serve in a bowl.
3.Meanwhile preheat a pan on medium heat.Add a dash of oil and break the egg into the pan.Cook until the edges of the egg is solid and browned a little. Flip the egg and let it cook for a few seconds, then serve it on top of your oatmeal.
4.Put ony our desired toppings and enjoy!
You can also poach the egg if you want to. Bring 2-3 inches of water in a pan to a boil. Add about 5ml of white vinegar. Using a wooden spoon stir in a rapid circular motion in the pan. Crack egg into the pan.Bring to simmer and cook for about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully lift up the egg. Get rid of excess water and serve.
Hope you enjoyed this comforting recipe,
Till next time,
