I'm allergic to oats. I know that sounds weird, but last year when they tested me for shellfish allergy, the biggest thing that showed up was oats. So I was told never to eat oats again.
I wanted to cook along with Mary this week and she chose an oatmeal dish, so I substituted risotto. I was thinking the ingredients sounded a lot like rice pudding, so maybe it would work.
I would not advise anyone to make this with rice. It was "okay," but not great. I am sure the oatmeal was better. Of course, I was not in a great mood tonight when I tried to eat it, so maybe that was the case too! Let's just say it was a trying day at work.
Ellie's recipes are always so good and I enjoy making them. They are healthy to boot. We have a great group cooking together each week so if you want to try Ellie's recipes with us, come on over and join in!
I'm already looking forward to next week's challenge.
