  • Bowl of Oatmeal

The following preparations all yield delicious bowls of oatmeal. They are best served with any of the following: a pat of butter; sprinkle of sugar or stevia; dollop of honey or yogurt; drizzle of milk and/or a healthy sprinkle of chopped nuts. For extra nuttiness, I highly recommend first toasting the oats in a dry skillet on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes.

Creamy rolled oatmeal. Combine 1 part oats, 3 parts water and a pinch of salt in saucepan. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low, cooking uncovered another 5 minutes or so.

Chewy steel-cut oatmeal. Combine 1 part steel-cut oats, 4 parts water and a pinch of salt. Let stand for an hour. Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until it reaches desired consistency.

Hearty groatmeal. Combine 1 part groats, 4 parts water and a pinch of salt. Let stand 1 to 2 hours, or overnight. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 45 minutes to an hour.
