Savory Oatmeal Porridge with Vegetables and Sausage

19 May

Think of this as Chinese congee that is made with oatmeal, or a bowl of oatmeal made with savory ingredients. Compared to rice, oatmeal is more healthy and can be cooked faster.  This is a favorite of mine mainly due to its simplicity, the speed that it can be made (therefore not requiring much planning) and I can put everything that I like in one pot.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoon rolled oats
  • 2 cups chicken stock/vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup of sausage, cubed

Direction:

Place chicken stock, celery, corn kernels and oats in a pot and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and allow to cook until desired consistency is reached, stirring occasionally. (I cooked for 13 minutes for a creamier texture). Stir in sausage and cook for a minute.  Salt and pepper to taste.

    That almost looked like congee.
