I tried to enhance the cholesterol fighting properties of oatmeal and also pack in a little extra protein with this recipe. The soy is the crumbly kind that people rehydrate and use for soy burgers etc. If you can only find oats that need 10-15 minutes cooking, add all the ingredients at once to the boiling water. Leftovers can be zapped in the microwave the next day.
- 8 cups water
- 1 cup steel cut oats, long cooking
- 1⁄2 cup oat bran
- 1⁄2 cup soy crumbles
- 3⁄4 cup dried cranberries
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Bring the water to a boil in a sauce pot and slowly stir in the steel cut oats.
- Boil for about 5 minutes and turn the heat down to simmer. Don't cover the pot.
- Cook for 15 minutes and then add the rest of the ingredients. Salt to taste (I don't use any).
- Bring the pot back to a simmer.
- Continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes.
- Keep an eye on the pot, you may need to add a little more boiling water during the last few minutes of cooking.
