RECIPE DETAIL – Sprinkle oats with water until they are soft. Do not wash them, or you will end you with soggy oats. They should feel wet and soft. Set it aside and continue with rest of the recipe. I have used Old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe.
Meanwhile saute veggies of your choice until tender. Since its a breakfast recipe, I have kept it pretty simple. My choice of veggies is just a starting point but you are welcome to add more veggies, cashews, peanuts and improvise to your liking.
This recipe yields 4 modest servings but feel free to double the servings and enjoy it for lunch too.
