This staple can be easily punched up for added protein, is filling, nutritious and very high in fiber (that’s good)

1 cup steel cut oatmeal
3 cups water
1 cup coconut. almond, or cow’s milk (or water)
1 pinch Himalayan Salt
4 Tablespoons quinoa seed (optional)
In a large saucepan, combine the water and milk. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, adjusting as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is very thick.
Stir in the salt. Continue to simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally and reducing heat as necessary to prevent scorching on the bottom, until almost all of the liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. (If you doubled the recipe, your oatmeal might need an extra 5 minutes cooking time here.) The oatmeal will be very creamy when it’s done.
Remove from heat and stir in hemp seeds. Let the oatmeal rest for 5 minutes before serving so it has more time to thicken up and cool down to the right temperature.
Ideas for toppings, these oats work great with frozen fruit.
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries.
Chopped walnuts, almonds, pecans
