I’m in looooove

Recently, a co-worker was in the kitchen making her lunch…a lunch of steel cut oats. I have seen these many times, and asked her about it. She could not say enough good things, so the next time I went to the grocery store I picked up a box.

Today I decided to try them out. Prepping I read the side of the box – over 30 minute cook time? Oh my! But, alas, I was told these were super yummy, so I pressed on. 30 minutes later, yum! It surely doesn’t look like the oats I’m used to, and boy, it doesn’t taste like it either. IT IS SOOOOO GOOD! Warm and gooey and refreshing…like a big bear hug. Can I ever go back to regular oats again? (My wallet says I must, but definitely keeping an eye out for sales!)

On a side note, speaking of price, why do less processed foods always cost more? Shouldn’t they cost less since there is less work in processing? K. back to my story…

To add a little spice to my oats, I added in:

1/2 apple, chopped

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

handful of raisins

pinch of salt

  1. .You can cut down the cook time by boiling
    1 1/2 c steel cut oats in 6 c of water for 1 minute then letting them sit overnight and reheating in the morning. Pure deliciousness.
