This sounds so delish! I don't like sweet stuff for breakfast and often eat my oats with a little olive oil, salt and cayenne. I have also been eating them topped with sautéed greens and a poached egg for years. Whenever I've shared this recipe with people, they make faces at me! Glad to see I've been validated in print.
I used to live in Asia and in Singapore they made a rice porridge for breakfast called congee
. In Indonesia they made a soup called nasi soto ayam
. Both are layered soups, with rice as the base, then layered with a flavorful ginger and lemongrass spiced chicken broth, shredded chicken meat, spring onions, mung bean sprouts, chilies, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime, then topped with a sliced hard boiled egg or a fried egg. I like to make it with a base of steel cut oats instead. Very tasty!
