Tags: cheese, rice, savory oats
Double post today to speed things along so I can move onto this week!
- 0.25 cup oats
- 0.25 cup cooked brown rice
- 0.75 cup water
- 0.25 cup milk
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 0.5 cup spinach
- 0.25 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp parmesan or salt or 0.125 of a bouillon cube << otherwise there’s no flavor!
- 1 tbsp flax
- 1 tbsp walnuts
Mix everything together. Microwave [or cook on stovetop if you’re not lazy 😀 ] for 2 minutes–ADD LOTS OF WATER–because I didn’t and explosion occurred. It was très sad.
Need to put more veggies next time! ‘Cause I was not full on this thing~maybe get a bigger bowl or something, ’cause I’m capable of eating epic proportions of vegetables 😛
Clockwise from top left: pear, container of broccoli, spinach, chickpeas, and kidney beans in boiling water [lazy way of cooking vegetables 😛 ], whole wheat english muffin with hummus, hard-boiled egg.
Oatmeal #117: English Breakfast September 27, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast.
Tags: savory oats, tea
I needed a break from sweet oats, so savory oats it was!
- oats, flax, walnuts, Kellogg’s all-bran cereal
- 1 tsp parmesan
- 0.25 chicken bouillon cube [wayyy too much]
- 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- ~1.5 slice turkey
- 1 cup English Breakfast tea
I was full to the max after this–which is awesome because I don’t have that much snacks lying around to eat!
The English Breakfast tea, according to what the packet said, is a blend of North Indian, Kenyan, and “other choice teas”…not sure what that means but I’ve never heard of any of these teas so who cares! 😀 It doesn’t taste much different from any other tea I’ve tried though–maybe I’m just not experienced enough to know the difference 😛
Oh, and I restocked my stash again yesterday ’cause I was worried that I wouldn’t have enough to last til December!
I now have a whole row in my pantry dedicated to oatmeal It is glorious.
For some reason I was really sleepy in class yesterday…so I was even more distracted than usual…it’s a wonder I actually have these bio notes to photograph!
Oatmeal Challenge: Risotto July 25, 2008Posted by oatmeal in Dinner, Lunch, Oatmeal Challenge.

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 😀
