January 17, 2018
Everyone’s had or heard about oatmeal. This popular dish with the superfood ‘oats’ is a consistent part of the breakfast regime for many of us. While the regular rolled oats and instant oats are healthy, won’t it be better to have a much more healthier version of our beloved oatmeal. Well, that’s possible with True Elements steel-cut oats. The nutty flavor and toothsome texture which the steel-cut oats impart are much better than the mushy and soupy regular oatmeal. This superb steel-cut oatmeal recipe delivers amazing texture and flavour along with loads of health benefits.

Cook: 17 mins
- Yields: 3 Cups
1 cup Milk- (almond milk or coconut milk can also be used for those with lactose intolerance)
3 cups Water
1 tsp Butter
1/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground
Salt: as desired

1Mix the water and milk in a large pan and simmer the mixture over medium heat. Simultaneously, in another pan melt the butter over medium heat and add the steel-cut oats .Keep stirring it occasionally, allowing it to cook. The toasted oats have a greatly enhanced taste.
2After about 2 minutes or after the oats turn golden, add the oats to the milk and water mixture. Cook the oats on reduced heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The mixture would start thickening gradually.
3Add the dash of salt and cook for 5-10 minutes. Turn off the heat; the oatmeal would be really creamy by then. Add your toppings and ground cinnamon just before serving and enjoy a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal.
