  • Savory Steel Cut Oats


    I really like to cook meals using steel cut oats instead of rice or other grains due to the higher protein and fiber levels of oats.

    Below is a recipe I use often and really like, but I also really want to try new recipes and would love your help. How do you use oats in a savory way??

    Unstuffed Pepper

    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 25 minutes
    Total Time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 4
    Difficulty: Easy


    3 Tbsp olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    cup Spanish (yellow) onions, medium dice
    cup green bell peppers, medium dice
    cup red bell peppers, medium dice
    pound raw ground turkey
    1 cup steel cut oats
    cup canned diced tomatoes with juice
    1 Tbsp tomato paste
    2 cups water

    Spices (combine spices in small bowl)
    1 tsp basil
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1 tsp oregano
    Tbsp parsley
    tsp salt


    In a medium sauce pot, heat the oil on medium heat. Add the garlic, and cook until golden brown. Add the onions, and cook until they are translucent. Add the peppers, and stir until all of the peppers are coated in oil. Add the ground turkey and season using half of the combined spices. Cook the turkey all the way through, until it reaches 165⁰ F.
    Add the oats and the remainder of spices, and stir well. Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and water, and stir well. Bring to a boil, and lower heat to low. Simmer uncovered for 25 minutes or until the oats are cooked (the liquid will begin to turn creamy and the oats will go from being crunchy to chewy). Stir every 3 minutes to prevent the oats from sticking.


    Sprinkle with shredded Pecorino Romano cheese and freshly chopped parsley.

      And hopefully, winter will be on its way out by the end of the month!

      It has definitely worn out its welcome here, with all that bloody snow!! And it won't soon be forgotten either, though everyone would like to!!
      The snow HAS melted down somewhat, and as soon as it is gone, the better!!!

        No melting here. We got another 20 inches Sunday and Monday with 14 inches forecast for tomorrow.
        13 feet and counting since the end of January
