In several parts of the country, temperatures are beginning to cool. We have less daylight from week to week . . .
. . .and [vigorously rubbing palms together] you know what that means!!
Yep! One pot meals. Soup, stews, chili, perhaps a lasagna or other favorite casserole.
Bust out those Instant Pots (or get one here) and get crack-a-lackin'!
There's nothing better in the "berrr months" than getting comfortable with a luxurious throw blanket, a good book to read (or write! . . .even better!), and the savory aroma of a pot of yumminess wafting throughout the house.
OK, so those of you who know me, are well aware of my cooking skills -- or lack thereof. So quit laughing because I came across a fun easy soup recipe even yours truly can't mess up.
Pay attention, Dear Hearts! I'm about to share.
Now, I will warn you. It's a weird one (on paper, anyway). But trust me, it's delicious . . .and healthy!
It's called "Oat Soup". Yes, I said it. Oats! . . in soup! Here's what you'll need (one serving portion. multiply as needed): Organic bone broth of your choice (Organic vegetable broth for vegetarians): 1 and 1/2 cups
Green and / or red bell pepper: amount to taste, diced
Onion: amount to taste, diced
Organic Steel Cut Oats:1/4 cup
Organic riced Cauliflower: 1/4 cup
Organic riced Broccoli: 1/4 cup
Savory seasonings of your choice: suggest turmeric, parsley flakes, cilantro, dill, herbs de provence, oregano, sage, garlic -- just a pinch of each
Salt: a dash
Black Pepper: a dash
Here's what you'll do:
Sautee diced green / red pepper and onion in grass fed butter in a skillet.
Add riced broccoli and cauliflower (I use already riced frozen. Don't judge me. I'm all about convenience), sauteed vegetables, and seasonings to broth.
Bring mixture to a boil.
Add Steel Cut Oats.
Simmer for 25 minutes, uncovered, occasionally stirring.*
*Optional: Add beef or chicken (cook it in your new Instant Pot while the above mixture is simmering).
And ET VOILA!!
If you're not one of those carb-haters (and honestly, Dear Hearts, who is? Show of hands unnecessary. Now, put 'em down), serve with a nice warm chunk of Dutch Crunch bread.
Now, grab your new throw, your favorite book (I hope it's one of mine! LOL) . . .
. . .and ENJOY!
