This savoury porridge is a delicious winter warmer recipe, made by cooking quick oats in vegetable stock (trust me) then topping with avocado, a boiled egg and seeds. Hungry?? Go bacon, tomato, feta – whereever your heart takes you. Done in ten.
I know y’all like ‘but porridge is sweet’, and you’d be right…until now. Oats can be enjoyed just like quinoa, rice or buckwheat in many recipes. Just because your mum used to cover them in honey, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them in a savoury dish too. To confuse you more, this is a breakfasty dish – but also great at lunch or as a side for dinner. Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that will keep you regular and lower cholesterol. The beta-glucan fiber found in oats helps regulate your appetite for up to 4 hours too, so you’re less likely to be snacking.
Once you make this, you’ll wonder why you haven’t been having it for years. Expect to start seeing it on restaurant menus soon! *2016 prediction*
Quinoa is one of the highest protein-rich foods you can eat and contains twice as much fibre as most other grains, helping you stay fuller for longer. Skip the usual oats for this delicious superfood porridge and please your sweet tooth at the same time!
