  • 45 g rolled oats [1/2 cup]
  • 2 halves sundried tomato
  • 60 g carrot [1 medium], diced
  • 300 ml water [1 1/4 cup]
  • 1/2 teaspoon bouillon powder or other seasoning of choice
  • 40 g cooked black beans [1/4 cup]
  • 30 g mixed frozen sweet corn and peas [1/4 cup]
  • Few sprigs oregano or other herbs of choice
  • Salt to taste


  • Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl and cover with some hot water to rehydrate and soften them.
  • Meanwhile you can dice the carrot.
  • Heat a saucepan on medium-high. Add in the oats. Roast for 2 minutes while stirring often to avoid them from burning. Once they turn a light brown, add in the carrots.
  • Then add in the water and stir.
  • Add the bouillon powder seasoning.
  • Remove the soaked tomatoes from the water and dice them. Then add them to the pot and let everything cook while stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes.
  • Then add the black beans, sweet corn, peas and the herbs. Let cook for another 3 minutes (add a little water if required). Adjust salt to taste if required.
  • Most of the water would have been absorbed at this stage. You may adjust the consistency by adding a little more water and allowing the oats to soften further. Or you may take it off the heat and serve or pack it for later.
