INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 zucchini(s)
  • 2 shallot(s)
  • 1 cup Green Peas
  • 6 leaf fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 1/4 cups cold water
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup Old-fashioned Rolled Oats

DIRECTIONS

1 Heat the oil in a large (PFOA-free) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini and half of the shallots, increase heat to medium-high, and sauté until the zucchini is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the (fresh or frozen thawed) peas until heated through, about 1 minute. Add the mint and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Set aside, covering loosely to keep warm.
2 Bring water (or low-sodium vegetable broth), remaining shallots, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to medium, add the oats, and stir until fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Stir in the vegetable mixture.
3 Transfer to bowls and serve as a side dish.
