Savory Oatmeal with Crispy Shiitakes
Savory oatmeal may seem surprising for a second, but once you get on board with the idea, it's a natural fit. A touch of soy sauce and a dab of butter launch this cheap and easy meal into full-umami territory. Feel free to add lots more vegetables -- I often do. Wilted spinach, corn kernels, and broccoli spring to mind. A little grated cheese or a few pieces of fresh or smoked mozzarella would also be delish.
teaspoon olive oil
yellow onion, finely diced
cloves garlic, minced
A sprinkle of fine sea salt
A few good grinds of black pepper
cups old-fashioned rolled oats
cups good vegetable stock
teaspoons soy sauce
recipe Crispy Shiitakes
seven-minute boiled eggs
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a medium-sized pot. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and the salt and pepper and cook two minutes more.
Add the oats and stock to the pot, bring to a boil over high heat, and then simmer, stirring from time to time, until the oats have absorbed just about all the liquid.
Stir in the soy sauce and butter.
Ladle into bowls and top each bowl with an egg and plenty of crispy shiitakes.
