  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 ml water
  • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 300 g cabbage, shredded
  • 30 g spring onions, chopped
  • 100 g Parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Prepare the Oatmeal Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the oatmeal, eggs, and water. Stir well until the mixture is homogeneous. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the oatmeal to absorb the water and soften slightly.
  2. Mix in the Vegetables:
    • Add the finely chopped bell pepper, grated carrot, shredded cabbage, and chopped spring onions to the oatmeal mixture. Season with salt and mix thoroughly to ensure even distribution of the vegetables.
  3. Assemble the Gratin:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a baking dish with a little oil or butter. Pour the vegetable and oatmeal mixture into the dish, spreading it out evenly.
  4. Bake:
    • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese evenly over the top of the mixture. Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the gratin is set.
  5. Serve:
    • Allow the gratin to cool slightly before cutting into squares or slices. Serve warm as a main dish or a hearty side.


  • Variations: You can add other vegetables such as spinach, zucchini, or mushrooms for added flavor and nutrients.
  • Serving Suggestions: This gratin can be served with a side salad or a light tomato sauce for extra moisture and flavor.
  • Make Ahead: This dish can be prepared in advance and reheated, making it perfect for meal prep or busy weeknight dinners.
