For those of you who enjoy steel cut oats as much as I do, but can’t always find the time to make them, this recipe is for you.
All you have to do is boil some water and cook your oats for ONE minute before you go to bed and when you wake up in the morning you will find perfectly cooked, steel cut oats waiting for you.
And when I say perfectly cooked, I mean p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y cooked.
I’ve been hearing about this technique for years and finally decided to give it a try. Not only is it the easiest way to make steel cut oats, but it yields the creamiest, lightest version of steel cut oats I’ve had to date. I highly recommend giving this method a try.
Overnight Steel Cut Oats
Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: No cooking - just hanging out in the pot
Total Time: 5 minutes + overnight
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1 cup dry steel cut oats
- A pinch of salt
Heat water in a large, heavy bottom pot. Once the water comes to a boil add the oats, stir, and cook for one minute.
Turn off the heat, pop on a lid and let the oats rest on the stove until the morning. When you wake up, turn the heat on a low for just a couple of minutes to warm up you perfectly cooked, steel cut oats. Enjoy!
