now i'm talking about regular quick-cooking oats that you find everywhere. a friend of ours was talking about steel cut oats a few weeks back and i thought i'd give it a try. so i searched for it. even the whole foods near me didn't have any when i looked, and guess where i finally found some... super target. didn't i say super target is awesome?
so i read the instructions on the box, and decided that cooking oats for 30mins in the morning when i'm hungry was not the way to go. i went the pre-soaking way. so i boiled a few cups of water in a pot, then stirred in the oats... then turned off the heat and covered the pot. the oats soaked over night and would be ready in 10-12mins the next morning. so the box said.
along with the omelette below, i also cooked the oats. when i turned the heat on, i also added some cinnamon and cardamon to the pot as the oats cooked. after about 10mins i checked and left it to cook for another 3-5mins. (after 10mins it was a little too chewy for me)
once it was cooked, i drizzled some organic honey and toasted coconut.
yum! ok i'm lying. my tastebuds weren't thrilled with the first spoonful, but it definitely has more flavor than regular oats! next time, i'll omit the organic honey though. i think it gave the oats a strange taste.
e loved it though. he finished the whole bowl!
