Oatmeal porridge with no cooking involved – can it be true? You betcha – and this is how you make it!
Oats is a super nutritious grain. First of all, it is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In addition, oats can help reduce LDL cholesterol and improve your blood sugar levels. Furthermore, it is full of healthy bacteria, not to mention the fact that it keeps you fuller for longer! In conclusion: Oatmeal is one of the very best ways you can start your day!
However, making oatmeal can be a bit of a hassle. It doesn’t take very long, but the oats can easily burn, so you have to keep a constant, watchful eye on the pot to make sure you don’t set off the smoke detector and ruin your breakfast in one fell swoop. And then there are all the dishes to deal with…
Well, that used to be the case, anyway. No more!
Let me show you how to make the perfect oatmeal in just 5 easy steps – with no cooking and hardly any dishes!
First, choose a Mason jar that holds at least 500 ml / 5 dl / half a litre / 1 pint.
Fill it with 65g of your very favouritest porridge oats (I like the gluten free kind).
Secondly, boil some water in a kettle and add 300 ml / 3 dl / half a pint of boiling water to the jar.
Next, give the contents a stir and fasten the lid tightly.
The porridge is done after about 20 minutes, during which you can finish the rest of your morning routine. You can also wait until the lid pops, which takes about half an hour. Don’t forget to give the oatmeal another stir after removing the lid.
Finally – enjoy!
Told you it was easy! No pot to watch, no burnt porridge, and hardly any washing up.
In other words, it’s a total win-win.
Season according to preference – a little salt, some sugar, cinnamon… Add some banana, blueberries or a drizzle of honey, if you prefer; the variations are almost endless. I like to pop a teaspoon of chia seeds in with the dried oats. It’s yummilicious.
