Stove Top Oatmeal - Vegan


1/4 Cup Oatmeal

3/4 Cup Water

✔ Pinch of Salt


Bring the water and salt to a boil and stir in the oatmeal - let it rise a little and then bring down to low heat and cook for 7-10 minutes. Use a spoon to break the clumps as the oatmeal is cooking but if you pour it slowly into the pot, this helps with the clumps. If you have a flat blade spoon, this actually works better at breaking the clumps. Push the lumps against the side of the pot or lightly stir as needed until it thickens and then let cool for 2 minutes. As above, you can add 1 Tsp of Flax before adding to the boiling water or you can stir in after cooking for a healthier start to your day. See below for tasty adders to your oatmeal.

You can eat them just like they are or add a little Butter and Cinnamon. Brown Sugar, Sugar or Honey are good too - in moderation. Ground walnuts are also a good addition - they don't "take over" the flavor, just change it a little. If you are diabetic and want a sweeter taste - still add the butter and cinnamon but consider a sugarless sweetener or sugarless brown sugar. There are safe products out there - you just need to see what's available and what your system can tolerate
