I really like steel cut oatmeal. I do not like rolled oatmeal. It's a textual thing, I guess? Either way, despite the increasing heat here in Houston I've been on an oatmeal kick. This one is particularly fun because it has blueberries in it, and who doesn't like blueberries? Also, it takes only a few minutes to make, and then you just heat it in the morning with your sugars. Hope you enjoy!
1 cup steel cut oats
2 tablespoons butter
1-2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 cup dried blueberries (if you're wanting to use fresh or frozen, use more)
4 cups water
2 tablespoons agave
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt butter in a 2-quart saucepan over high heat. Add oats and salt, and stir around, frying for about a minute. Add water and blueberries (but don't add these yet if you're using fresh or frozen) and bring to a boil. Let boil one minute, turn off the heat and put the lid on. Leave it on the stove until you come back in the morning (I do this part right before bed). In the morning, pop off the lid and add the second group of ingredients (and fresh or frozen berries). Heat through, stirring to incorporate the new ingredients. Serves 4.
