Tag Archives: steel-cut oatmeal

Power to Ya Health Breakfast!

In my pantry today:

  • 1 c cooked steel-cut oats
  • 1 tbsp ground golden flax seeds
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp asafoetida
  • 1 tbsp walnuts

So this one’s real easy once you’ve made a batch of the steel-cut oatmeal and stocked it in the fridge (or if you’ve just finished making said batch). Stir all that junk up there, ‘cept the nuts, into your oatmeal. Once hot, put it in a bowl (if’n you’re feeling hifallutin) and top with a few walnuts. It’s a delicious experience — I will never again eat instant oatmeal because I did not know how delicious the true face of oatmeal was. The consistency is amazing — silky without being slimy, then a chewable texture that the instant stuff doesn’t provide. It’s almost more pudding-like than any oatmeal I’ve before experienced. 5 damn spoons, yo.
