Here are two bowls of dry oatmeal. The 1st is natural, unprocessed oats. The other is processed, instant rolled oats with added sugars and artificial flavorings. Guess which one is better for you??
You guessed it!! Steel cut oats because they're naturally high in fiber, calcium, and B vitamins AND low in calories and sodium. Plus, as a natural food, steel cut oats lack artificial additives.
Measure 2 cups of water.
Almond milk is high in Vit E, phosphorous, potassium, iron, zinc & calcium; and it's lactose, gluten, casein, saturated fat and cholesterol free!
Measure 1 cup of steel cut oats.
Add water and almond milk to stock pot.
Bring water and almond milk to a slow boil over medium heat. Keep heat moderate so you don't scorch the milk. Burned milk tastes YUCKY!
Here's what a slow rolling boil looks like. Now it's time to add the oats.
After about 12-15 mins, the liquid will cook down and you'll see the oats peeking through. Cook another 5 mins, then remove from heat and cover. Leave oatmeal covered for ~20mins.
Put 1 cup of oatmeal in a bowl, add 1/2 cup of your favorite fresh fruit and top with a few walnuts. Enjoy!!
