Whole oats and oatmeal are quite essential if you fancy hot and healthy breakfasts. Whether you like it the dense ancient whole grain way, it’s quite affordable and easy to cook. Its humble nature makes it an approachable yet highly nutritious breakfast for anyone to fall in love with.
When cooked, whole oats give that sweet creamy subtle flavour with sometimes a chewy texture. Just remember to soak them overnight! Serve the savoury oats warm straight from the pan at room temperature to get the best out of your delicious oatmeal. The whole grain oats come with that chewy nutty texture since they are not among processed foods.
Our favourite oatmeal recipe
Ingredients (for 300 g)
- 125 g Szafi Gluten Free Whole Oats
- 200 g (approx. 2 dl) water
- 3 g salt
- spices of your choice
Pour the water onto the whole oats, bring to the boil and cook it under the lid for about 8 minutes (cooking time depends on the cooking stove). Stir the mixture after 4-5 minutes. When it is done, stir it and let it rest under the lid 10 more minutes (the whole oats will completely absorb the water)
It is a great side dish on its own but you can also mix it with cooked vegetables and serve it as a vegetarian dish. The cooked whole oat is also suitable for making layered and stuffed dishes – salt and sweet -, and it is a great rice substitute.
