Our first Savory Oatmeal adventure - Sweet #Pea and Lemon #Oatmeal with #Parmesan. #putaneggonitinbaku. Thanks for the recipes @greccoburatto

Ingredients

½ cup oats
1 cup liquid (milk of choice/water)
Pinch of salt
About ¼ cup peas, fresh or frozen
¼ tsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. lemon zest, plus more for topping
Miniscule pinch of nutmeg
2-3 tsp. Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping (depending on how thick/potent you’d like it to be)
Salt and pepper to taste
In a pot, bring together the oats, liquid, and salt. As soon as the water begins to boil, add in the peas, letting them soften up into the oats. When they are thick, stir in the lemon juice and zest, and nutmeg, and continue stirring so that the oatmeal starts to breaks down.

While there is still some water left, add in the Parmesan, and stir so it starts to melt and become creamy. This should thicken the oatmeal up quite a bit. Once the desired consistency is reached, transfer to a bowl or dish. Top with salt, pepper, lemon, and Parmesan, as desired to taste.
