1 Add the olive oil and oats to a large pan.
2 Cook the oats for three to four minutes. Add the onion, garlic, asparagus, and mushrooms and stir briefly to combine.
3 Stir in a ladle of stock at a time until it is absorbed by the oats. Continue adding stock until the oats are creamy and al dente, which should take around 20 minutes.
4 Season to taste with salt and pepper and then serve, sprinkled with parsley.

Just when you thought Quaker Oats couldn't get any better, Quaker Steel Cut Oats are out to prove otherwise. These 100% whole grain oats are steel cut, rather than rolled, offering you a heartier texture and a rich, nutty taste. Try them topped with your favorite fruits, nuts or a dab of honey, and you'll agree that Quaker Steel Cut Oats are a distinctly delicious way to start your day.
This is from their US website - but I don't see why you couldn't get them (or another brand) in the UK - they don't sound particularly exotic! I wonder if it just tastes like savoury porridge?
Ha, I think no oats is the secret to any good risotto!
