  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until softened.
  • 2
    Add broth and water; heat to boiling. Gradually stir in oats. Using coarse side of grater, grate carrots into oat mixture. Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes or until oats are soft and creamy.
  • 3
    Stir in peas. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peas are thoroughly heated.
  • 4
    Remove pilaf from heat. Stir in parsley, lemon peel and ground red pepper. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Expert Tips

  • Unlike rolled oats, steel cut oats have a nutty flavor because they contain oat bran. Because of this, they take longer to cook, so don’t substitute old-fashioned or instant oats in the recipe.
  • For an easy main course, top each serving of pilaf with a cooked egg.
