Second Breakfast: Steel-Cut Oatmeal
This recipe takes a little while, so we don't find it to be the best choice at 6:30 or 7 in the morning. Eat a piece of toast, and then enjoy your oatmeal a little later. Or on Saturday.
1 cup steel-cut (pinhead) oats
salt, if desired
Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add one cup of steel-cut oats and boil for three minutes. Be careful, as sometimes they boil over. While they are boiling, fill the bottom of the steamer with water at the lowest level. When the oats are finished boiling, drain as much water from them as possible and put them in the top of the steamer. Steam the oats for 12-15 minutes. Mix the oatmeal with dairy-free margarine, brown sugar, and salt to taste.
