Our Favorite Breakfast

Soaked Steel-Cut Oats

With rare exception, this is our breakfast everyday.  One of our boys is eating it too!   We set up the oats to soak in the evening and then the cereal takes only about 10 minutes to cook in the morning.  We vary our additions: raisins, prunes, mulberries, walnuts, fresh fruit – take your pick.

Ingredients:

½ cup Organic Steel-Cut Oats

1 cup water

2 tablespoons organic, preferably homemade kefir  (you can also use whey, buttermilk, yogurt or lemon juice)

½ tsp. celtic sea salt

½ cup water

¼ cup dried fruit, chopped if larger then raisins

1 tablespoon Organic Coconut Oil

¼ cup Kefir, Buttermilk or Yogurt

The evening before, put the first three ingredients in a small pot, stir, cover and leave sitting until the next morning.

In the morning add the salt, dried fruit, and ½ cup water.

If you like your oatmeal creamy, add the salt after cooking.

Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until it’s gently boiling, then cook for five minutes more.  If we’re not going to eat it right away we turn the heat to low and let it sit covered, until we’re ready.  Just before serving stir in 1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil and ¼ cup kefir.  You can add nuts, more dried fruit, sprouted flax – anything else you like as an add in – and enjoy!

Serves 2
