Vegetable & Oats Porridge: For a healthier you

Here is the recipe for one of my usual morning breakfast. I make them for myself at least once a week.


Preparation time: 2-3mins
Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients: (Serves a hungry human!)
Quick cook oats: 3/4th cup
Mixed vegetables: 3/4th cup, shredded or finely chopped.
Water: 2 cups
Salt: a pinch, more or less
Pepper powder: a pinch
Parmesan cheese: 1 tsp, optional

Method:
In a saucepan, boil the water along with the shredded vegetables.When water starts boiling add the salt.
Throw in the oats & cook on a medium heat for 2-3mins.
Turn off the heat, add the pepper, Parmesan cheese & mix well.
Enjoy your porridge.


Notes:
  • I have used vegetables like broccoli, carrot, french beans, cauliflower, potato to prepare this porridge. You could add any vegetable you have. Ensure to chop it really fine. If you could mince them, there is nothing like it!
  • Oats are easily available in India too. I am not sure about the small towns, but in big cities, you will easily find them. 
Few other interesting savory oats porridge recipes could be found here.
