not sure if this is in the correct section, but just wanted to share.
Steel cut oats aka irish oats are very tasty, filling and a excellent way to start your day, or even eat any time of day, the only problem is they take at least 30 minutes to prepare.
here is what I do, basic ratio is 1 part oats to 4 parts liquid, ( I use milk and water mix)
placae 1 cup oats with 2 cups water into a bowl, leave this overnight ,or for a least a few hours( the oats will soften )
To this oat/water mixture add another 2 cups of liquid- I use ff milk.
In a heavy sauce pan, bring this mixture to boil, then simmer for about 5, until
desired thickness is achieved.
I divided this into containers, it freezer really well, just defrost and microwave for a quick breakfast.
also I like to add a tablesppon of peanut butter for added protein, I am full for at least 3-4 hours with this breakfast. ( a serving is about 3/4 cup of cooked oats)
