Oatmeal Sabzi

Oatmeal Sabzi

Till I tasted this I had always had my oatmeal with bananas or other fruit and nuts.  The vegetables really do bring out a different side of the oats.  We usually use carrots, peas, and beans, but am curious how it would do with eggplant or okra.  Here is the recipe as told to me by  Somnath Baba in Boston:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup assorted diced vegetables
1 cup rolled oats
3 cups water
pinch of salt
dash of mustard oil (optional)

Steps:

Bring water, salt and vegetables to a boil.
Add oats and simmer for about 20 minutes or till vegetables are cooked.
Drizzle with mustard oil for added zing!

Amma adds: EZ Cooker is wonderful for cooking oatmeal – never burns, never boils over!
