Healthy Steel Cut Oats for Breakfast


I love the nutty flavour and the texture of steel cut oats but the 25 minutes it takes to cook them is sometimes too much for me.  I get lazy and fry an egg.    Here is a trick for you!  Soak them overnight in water and they cook in 5 minutes the next morning!  I use one part oats to 2 parts water.  Top them with chopped candied ginger, dried papaya and coconut for a tropical twist.  Satisfying, healthy and quick.

  2. Oatmeal is perfect on a cold morning. I can't say that I have ever prepared 'real" oatmeal. (sigh). I have always used Quaker Oats or instant (ugh). I need to change my ways...
