480 ml boiling water (2 cups)
240 ml milk (1 cup)
40 g sugar (2 Tbsp)
Pinch of salt
You don’t need to a lot of ingredients to make great recipes 🙂
1. Place the milk, water, oats and salt in a saucepan. Stir and bring to a boil then lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Add the sugar and cook for 3-4 minutes while stirring constantly until the oatmeal thickens. It’s important to keep mixing so that the oatmeal doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
2. As soon as the oatmeal thickens, remove from the heat and divide into bowls.
You don’t have to use sugar. First taste and then decide whether and how much sweetener you want to add.
You can serve with slices of banana, apple, walnuts, raisins, cranberries, cinnamon, and strawberries when in season.
You can place a small (or large) piece of chocolate at the bottom of the bowl and spoon the hot oatmeal on top. The chocolate will slowly melt into the oatmeal. You can also grate chocolate on top.
You can also serve with honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, everything goes. You can also use only water instead of the milk.
