  • 1½ cups (150g) oats 
  • 4 cups (1L) chicken or vegetable stock 
  • Glug olive oil 
  • 1 onion, chopped 
  • 2cm knob fresh ginger, grated 
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, grated 
  • Juice (30ml) and grated peel of 1 lime 
  • Salt and milled pepper 


For serving: 

  • 4 soft-boiled eggs 
  • Bagel seasoning (see cook’s note) 
  • Sliced spring onion 
  • Chilli crisp oil 
  • Soy sauce 



  1. Bring oats and stock to a gentle simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  
  2. Cook for about 15 minutes – it should have the consistency of risotto. 
  3. Heat oil over medium heat and sauté onion until soft (8-10 minutes). 
  4. Stir in ginger and garlic and fry for another minute until fragrant. 
  5. Tip in cooked oats (loosen with a few tablespoons of water if needed). 
  6. Add lime juice and zest, and season. 
  7. Serve oats topped with eggs, bagel seasoning, spring onion, chilli oil and a dash of soy sauce. 


To make bagel seasoning mix together equal parts garlic flakes, onion flakes, white and black sesame seeds, poppy seeds and Maldon salt. Serve sprinkled over oats.
