Healthy Oatmeal Is Easy In Your Rice Cooker
When I first learned that soaking my grains was more healthy than just cooking them right away, I was overwhelmed. The thought of all the work involved. I was also still very tired and lacking energy.
“So now I have to cook all my own food?” “That’s how I’ll recover my health?”
Well, it wasn't easy for me in the beginning but there’s great news for you.
You get all my tips to make things easier.
Here’s a recipe that allows you to soak your oatmeal for the appropriate amount of time and wake up in the morning to hot cereal perfectly prepared.
“Coffee AND a hot, healthy breakfast anyone?”
In a 5 ½ cup Zojirushi or Sanyo (with slow-cooker cycle) or a 10-cup Tiger Rice Cooker with a Porridge Cycle
Place in rice-cooker bowl the night before serving
• 1 ¼ cups steel-cut oats
• 3 cups room temperature water
• 2 tablespoons whey, yoghurt, kefir, buttermilk or lemon juice/vinegar if allergic to milk products.
I close the lid and set the rice cooker to the porridge cycle and the timer for morning (at least 7 hours ahead).
When I wake up there is hot cereal ready to eat, perfectly prepared in the old-world traditional way. Who says you can't mix technology with the past?
Everyone can add their own favorite ingredients to individual taste.
I add to mine:
Honey, Sucanat or maple syrup
Sucanat is like brown sugar (my favorite)
Grated unsweetened coconut
1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
Any of these three rice cookers will work to make this oatmeal.
