Like risotto [oatmeal-sotto?]…but extra chewy!

Words cannot convey to you how heavenly this was! I love how oatmeal tastes good no matter what you do to it! It tasted so creamy, and every bite was full of flavor!

I noticed that while cooking, the oats and the water it was cooked in [before adding broth] was a slightly darker color, which I suspect has something to do with the sauteed onions and garlic that was in the pot–so pretty! And the smell was A-MAZING.

Stuff I had:

  • 0.5 cup oats
  • 0.5 cup water
  • 0.5 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp flax
  • 0.25 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 0.5 yellow pepper
  • 1 slice soft tofu
  • frozen broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mix
  • 2 tsp parmesan, sprinkled on at the end


So this was my first ever “risotto”–can’t wait to cook it again the normal way!

Ooh, and check out the normal lunch I had today and yesterday!


Pasta salad! I created a dressing out of equal parts extra virgin olive oil, ketchup, and rice vinegar, and seasoned with oregano–super good! I should eat like a normal person more often πŸ˜€

The “oatmeal-sotto” (hehe, love the term) and pasta salad look wonderful!

That actually sounds really good… I never would have thought that you could make risotto with different grains… awesome!

That pasta salad though… oh yum!

Oooh Oatmeal-sotto looks fantastic! You’re so right – you can really put whatever the heck you want in those oats and they still taste great!

Yeah Oatmeal Challenge!

You use flax in lots of recipes, may i ask why? And is there a sub for it? Thank you so much!
