The weather here has been miserable, and nothing makes that more bearable than some cozy and warm comfort food. One of my favorites is Irish oatmeal (steel cut oats).
I never, ever start this stuff in the morning because frankly I don’t have the time or patience to cook the oats for 30 minutes. An easy shortcut is to start the night before: boil up some water, turn off the heat, and add the oats (4 parts water to one part oats, with about 1/4 cup oats per serving). Cover it and leave it overnight. In the morning, just add apples (diced small or grated), raisins, and cinnamon and cook for 5-10 minutes. Serve in a bowl with some brown sugar, a splash of your favorite nondairy milk, and maybe a tiny bit of soy creamer. I swear I feel like I’m having pudding for breakfast.
For an extra treat, try this with some Vietnamese cinnamon.
