Steel cut oats
Float almond, soy, or coconut milk (not pictured it covers all the toppings)
Takes about 15 minutes
For one serving
1/2 cup of oats and 1 1/2 cups of water
boil water then add oats and dash of salt
Add a smidge of butter as in less than half a tsp. You can add more if you like it's mainly for flavor. The oats are creamy regardless.
Stir slowly, but constantly
Oats should be ready in about 15 minutes
Add your favorite toppings and experiment: berries, bananas, cardamon, nutmeg, fresh basil or mint leaves, cacoa powder, flax seeds, honey, maple syrup
Steel cut oats take longer to cook because they are less processed. You get the whole kernel of the oat which is cut up, but not removed like in traditional oatmeal. Steel cut oats are nuttier in flavor, chewier and personally I find more filling. Taking the time to prepare a meal and savor each bite is also part of what makes a meal nutritious for the body, mind and heart.
