McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
Dr. Barnard recommends eating steal-cut oats as opposed to consuming over-processed “1-minute” oats, so I thought I would give Mccann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal a try.
If you like oatmeal but you’ve never had the wholesome steel-cut variety before, you are really in for a treat. I had no idea that oatmeal could taste this great. It sounds silly, I know. But it’s just an entirely different experience than “quick-oats”.
I’ll have to save this treat for weekends, though, as it takes about 1/2 hour to prepare. It’s not that it’s hard to make or anything, it just takes 20 minutes to simmer, and you have to stir it occasionally. That’s not a 1/2 hour I can fit into an already busy workday.
I drizzled a little bit of maple syrup on top. I’m telling you, it was crazy delicious…a nice nutty soft-crunch in every bite.
Here’s how to cook steal cut oats:
- Bring 3 cups of water and 1/4 teaspoons of salt to a boil.
- Add 1 cups of steal-cut oats.
- Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and let it rest for 2 minutes.
You can do this in a thermos night before so no prep in the a.m.
And ideas: add some NingXia wolfberries (superfood), chopped organic apples, walnuts, almonds, dates and or prunes for some extra fiberlicious flavah.
That is an AMAZING idea! Thanks for the tip! Love your site, OrganicaJane.com, BTW. 😛
