  • ½

    cup Steel Cut Oats

  • 2

    cups water

  • 1

    tablespoon oil

  • Dash of salt


Add butter to pressure cooking pot; select Sauté. When butter is melted add the oats and toast, stirring constantly, until they smell nutty, about 3 minutes. Add water, milk and salt. Select high pressure and set 3 minutes cook time. When beep sounds, turn off pressure cooker and use a natural pressure release. When valve drops, carefully remove lid. Stir oats. Cover and let sit five minutes until oats are desired thickness. Top with milk, fresh or dried fruit, chopped nuts or granola, and your favorite sweetener—brown or white sugar, maple syrup, or agave syrup. This time I chose dried blueberries, strawberries, granola and brown sugar.
