In this dish, oats are a great alternative to rice and it’s a foundation dish that you can dress up in many ways.

1 cup Highwood Crossing Organic Steel-Cut Oats
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon parsley, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon fresh marjoram
1 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock
1 small onion, diced
1 celery, minced
1 carrot, diced
1 tablespoon tamari
salt and pepper

Sauté oats in oil until they are lightly browned. Add garlic and herbs, onion, carrot and celery. Add stock, tamari, salt and pepper. Lower heat, simmer, covered for 20 minutes or until stock has been absorbed and the oats are just tender. Remove from heat and let steam covered, for 10 minutes.

Fluff with a fork and serve.
