Steel Cut Oats recipe by Reykjaviky

I have read so many recipes that say you have to soak steel cuts over night or have to boil them for 20-45 minutes. That's great if you want the same ol' mushy, bland oats. To taste oats like you never tasted them before, try this way. This "cooking" method truly keeps the oats chewy, yummy and nutty tasting. This ain't ya granny's or ya mamma's oatmeal! Not only very delicious, it ALSO keeps you feeling full for hours. I have lost weight eating this for breakfast and my cholesterol/triglyceride levels have dropped to better than normal:

1.) Bring a medium pot of water to a rolling boil
2.) Dump enough (organic) steel cut oats in to where there is about 1 1/2 inches of water above them.
3.) IMMEDIATELY REMOVE them off the stove
4.) Salt to taste
5.) Set aside for about 10 min. or more, whatever you choose
6.) You can add any organic fruit, ground organic flax seed, organic walnuts, whatever...

***If there is still too much water, just drain it. If there isn't enough, add's just oats, NOT as precise as a rice recipe!***

Let the rest cool, store in any container you wish in the fridge. It's great hot or cold. (*if you add a touch of salt and organic extra virgin olive oil INSTEAD of butter and sugar and butter, you have your very own inexpensive recipe for a heart healthy breakfast that will keep you full for hours!)
