If you have a little extra time for cooking breakfast, this oatmeal is really worth it. This recipe serves 2.
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup milk of your choice (I used homemade rice)
1/2 tablespoon oil (I used coconut)
1/2 cup steel-cut oats
Fruit and nuts of your choice
Maple syrup, to taste
Put wet ingredients in large measuirng cup or other suitable container. Microwave on high until they begin to bubble but do not boil. While this is microwaving, add oil to skillet over medium heat. Stir in oats and keep stirring until golden, about 2 minutes. Carefully pour warm liquid mixture into skillet with oats. Bring to simmer and let cook until oatmeal thickens, about 20 minutes. Add salt. At this point, you will want to stir with a chopstick or spoon handle. Keep stiring this way every few minutes until the oatmeal reaches the consistency of pudding (or whatever consisitency you’d prefer). This should take no more than 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Adding frozen fruits will help cool it down to a temperature suitable for eating.
