Soaked Oatmeal Recipe

This is a very easy recipe for soaked oatmeal. Pre-soaking the oats breaks down the phytic acid, helps it to cook much faster in the morning. It also makes the oatmeal taste creamy and delicious. For a real treat use goat's milk yogurt.

1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup water
2 tablespoons of yogurt
pinch of sea salt

Mix 1/2 cup of water, the oats and the yogurt and let it soak overnight on the counter. Put the oatmeal in a pot with 1/2 cup of water and a pinch of salt and bring to a low boil and lower the flame to simmer. It should be ready in about 5 minutes. I like to add some cold milk and a little bit of maple syrup. You can also add some fruit, raisins or nuts.

I use rolled oats. They don't get soggy they get creamy. You can also use steel cut oats though.
