Savory Oats for Dinner

Tonight’s dinner was something that I had been wanting to try for a while.   Savory oats.  I spotted a recipe for an oatmeal hash probably a year ago, but had never given the meal a try.  I’m not quite sure what kind of mood I was in tonight, but these oats sounded particularly good, so I decided to give this idea of oatmeal hash a go.

 

Cod Oatmeal Hash (Adapted from Peanut Butter Fingers)

Yield: 2-3 servings, depending on how hungry you are

Ingredients:

  • 1 half chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped cauliflower
  • 4 chopped artichoke hearts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 small filets of cod, cooked

Directions:

Place the chopped red onion and rolled oats into a warm frying pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Continue to stir the oats and onion for about two minutes, until the onion is translucent.

Next, add the boiling water, broccoli, cauliflower, artichoke, and zucchini along with the salt, pepper, and garlic.

Allow to simmer on the stove uncovered for about 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed, stirring occasionally.

Remove the oats and veggies from the stove, and stir in the cod.  Serve and enjoy!

Now that dinner is all eaten and in the process of digesting, it is time to relax, create a couple of workout routines for some new group fitness classes I have coming up, and maybe watch an episode of Modern Family.

Good night!
