Prep Time5 mins

Total Time20 mins
- 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.
