A few weeks ago I watched a Jamie Oliver video on social media, and it changed my life.
So apparently, you don’t cook oats on the stove with milk, or cream as Jamie suggests.
You do it with water, the traditional Scottish way.
3 parts water to your oats. (So if you do half cup oats like me, you would follow with one and a half cups of water).
A good pinch of salt.
And then you stir and stir, letting this delicious pot of oats turn to cream in about 13-15 minutes.
OMG. It is actually amazing.
Don’t worry, you can add the sweetness you desire.
He had a whole bevy of ideas for sweet toppings, but I just went with a simple arrangement of fruits today.
You can look up the video by typing in ‘Jamie Oliver oats five ways,’ or even type in ‘Scottish oats by Jamie Oliver.’
I honestly feel like my body is shouting “thank you!” when I eat this in the morning. It’s become a bit of a recent staple, you know, being in the depths of Winter and all.
But it is important, and Chinese medicine will concur, that it’s vitally important especially at this time of year, to keep our bodies warm, and that includes from the inside out too. 💖🥣
