My Favourite Ingredients
Steel cut oats, also known as Irish oats, coarse oatmeal or pinhead oats are whole oat grains (groats) that have been chopped into two or three pieces (using steel blades). They are traditionally used to make porridge and are often imported in tins from Ireland or Scotland.
Steel cut oats require a fairly long cooking time (about 20-30 minutes) and have a chewy, nutty and hearty consistency. Like lentils of beans, they can be pre-soaked and cooked in about half the time. They have a lower Glycemic Index (GI) so will usually make one feel full for a longer time compared to instant oats that have a high GI.

My favorite winter breakfast! My oldest also love steel cut oats, he pretty much eats a bottomless bowl!
I have truly missed you. I shall be visiting your blog soon. I am busy with this and that etc etc etc…. Every time I see steel cut oats I think of you. My warm regards to your family. Best wishes!
I know all about busy! Find some time to relax, glad to see you again.
Thank you. You are my rock. Have the best of times!
So glad your back!! I really missed you. I have dreams of listing regularity again, twice a week. Time will tell if that happens. Mathis water boiling due to the flood really makes cooking and washing dishes challenging though.
I don’t worry about being regular. Will just post whenever I can. Oh yes having to boil water is not an easy task. I hope things will get back to normal soon. Wish you all the best. Take care!
