Oat risotto with roast mushrooms and peas
It’s about time we start playing with savoury oats – a concept that we’ve been toying with for a while now, but haven’t found the opportunity to get it off the ground.
Oats are a staple that most people have in their house, and which we feel are grossly under-utilised when compared to other starch sources – time to explore the possibilities!
This is a savoury explosion more along the lines of a porridge than a risotto really, but still has that delicious oat texture you know and love, combined with lovely nutty roast mushrooms and sweet onions. We topped off with an egg to beef up the protein content, but, as always, fortify with whatever protein tickles your fancy.
