Rolled Oat Porridge with Pumpkin and Veggie

Craving for savoury breakfast this morning. And wanted some healthy food like rolled oat.  Decided to cook this savoury rolled oat porridge. This is very simple and quick fit. Easy to cook and nice to eat. It is just simply combined all together and you get it done in 10-15min. I have some leftover pan fried sliced pork from last nighy dinner. So I added a slice of the pork into the porridge. It taste really good. If you want it totally vegetarian,  omit the meat. I am very satisfied as I get to eat rolled oat and pumpkin together and it is done in the way I desire...haha. I guess the benefits of knowing how to cook is you can cook the food you like and way you want. 

Learning to cook is always an asset and advantage. Whenever you are tired of food from hawker centre or restaurant,  you can always DIY. Homecooked food is always the best.

3 tbsp rolled oats
1 cup water
50-100g pumpkin- diced
1-2 stalks of Japanese Tang-O - chopped or any kind of vegetable like brocoli or cabbages
1 slice of sabu sabu (optional) - diced or minced meat

1 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/8 tsp chicken powder (optional)

1. In pot put rolled oat and water to boil for approximately 5min. Lower fire to simmer.

2. Cook rolled oat till soft and expand like porridge, add pumpkin and meat (if you are adding meat).  Cook till pumpkin is soft (appro. 5min) and meat is cooked. Add veggie and seasoning to desire taste.  Let the oat porridge cook for another minute till veggie is cooked. Off fire. Serve.

Note: You replace other type of vegetable like cabbages or any veggie that you desire.
