My favorite savory oatmeal dish is simple. Sorry for the
less-than-traditional format here!
Begin with slightly more water than you would normally use (perhaps
2.5 cups where the recipe calls for 2 cups--i use more than that,
but I like it soupier, and YMMV), and add the appropriate quantity of
veggie broth powder/cubes. You could probably use canned broth
Mince some veggies--I like a combination of onion, carrot, celery,
and perhaps some mushroom and a couple of cloves of garlic. I can't
give precise measurements here--it depends on the veggie to porridge
ratio you want in the end. :) (Chopping the veggies doesn't really
take that long, even in the morning.)
Let the veggies boil in the broth for a few minutes before you add
the oatmeal to it, then cook the oatmeal like usual. I like to
lightly spinkle each bowl with coarsely ground black pepper--but I
want to experiment a bit with seasonings.
Hope this helps!
