Savoury oats... Now, I have tried to make it once before when I got highly into making different varieties of oat porridge. Although my egg and sausage porridge didn't quite make it, I found this recipe here and thought I would give it another go, making a savoury version of it.
I mean, the last time I was simply improvising, but this recipe, it was made by someone who knew their stuff - admittedly! As well as being a savoury version of oat porridge, it is said to be good for the nervous system.
As I was cooking it, it smelt like noodles - I kid you not! And it tasted like it too, mmmm....
Delicious Oat Soup
1 tbsp (extra virgin) olive oil
1 small garlic clove, finely chopped or minced
10g ground hazelnuts (I only had almonds, so I used that!)
300-400ml vegetable stock (non-veggies can use chicken stock instead if they want)
Salt to taste
Garnish: I didn't have hazelnuts at hand, so I topped it with some dried parsley and walnuts, don't say I'm not good to you nervous system!
- Start by heating up oil in a pan, add the garlic and oats and brown lightly, before adding the ground nuts. Stir for a minute of two before adding the stock.
- Simmer on low for about 5-10 minutes and stir occasionally. Pour in a little more water if necessary, mine dried up a little, so I added a good splash more, it all depends on the type of oat you are using!
- Add some salt to taste, and...that's it really! I can't believe it came out that tasty!
