Delicious Steel Cut Oats


Who doesn't love a hearty porridge for breakfast! Here's how to prepare steel cut oats for the most delicious dish.


  • 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 3 cups water
  • 3-fingered pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk (optional)


2-quart saucepan


  1. Start the night before. Measure out your oats, this quantity will make about 4 servings

  2. Heat the butter or oil in the saucepan, set over medium heat. Add the oats and toast them for about 3 minutes, or until they start melling toasty.

  3. Pour in the water and add the salt. Stir.

  4. Bring to a rolling boil.

  5. Turn off the heat and cover the pan. Leave it on the stove overnight.

  6. The next morning, uncover the pan and bring the oatmeal back up to a simmer. If you would like a thinner and creamier oatmeal, stir in a cup of milk before reheating.

When the oatmeal is warm, scoop out and enjoy with fresh fruit, a dollop of organic yoghurt or raw honey!
