Counting on … day 228 

29th June 2022

The wrinkled peas have become a version of risi bisi but rather than rice I have used porridge oats. Beginning with a chopped onion and come garlic cooked in oil, I added the oat flakes as if I were making a risotto. Next I added the  peas and their cooking liquid and a chopped tomato, and  stirring from time to time allowed the oats to swell and absorb the liquid. For extra flavour I added some pepper and nutmeg. Once the desired texture was achieved, I added some nutritional yeast flakes (ones fortified with vitamin  B12). Another  time I might add lemon juice and zest, or parsley, or salted lemon for different flavours.
