More to oats than Porridge in National Vegetarian Week


When giving cooking demonstrations I often talk about the variety of dishes that use oats. From Scottish to Staffordshire oatcakes, Yorkshire Parkin, apple crumble or even added to bread, oats are a really versatile and healthy ingredient to use in cooking. That’s why in National Vegetarian Week I’m sharing the really healthy, full of flavour, vegetarian dinner time oat recipe ‘Walnut Moussaka’.
