No-Rice Risotto

This no-cook risotto replaces rice with oats and vegetables. Both ingredients are low in calories but high in satiety, helping you stay fuller for longer. Also, the reduced-fat cream cheese gives the dish the same traditional creamy texture, without the added fat!

Makes 2 servings

1 cup Gluten-free quick-cook oats
2 cups Broth (low sodium chicken or vegetable)
1 1/2 cups Frozen peas
1 tbsp Fresh rosemary
2 tbsp Reduced-fat cream cheese
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Pre-cooked chicken strips (optional)

Microwave oats and broth for 2 minutes.

Stir in peas, cream cheese, salt and pepper.

Microwave for another 2 minutes. Add rosemary and optional pre-cooked chicken or protein. Serve warm.
