We make a big pot of soup every Sunday. All the leftover vegetable bits go into the soup so it's always a little different from week to week. It always has steel cut oats tossed in. They make nice tiny chewy bits.

I think it's quite traditional in Irish and Scottish cooking to put oats in stew to thicken them.
I'll go take a look..

Brotchan Roy, Irish leek and oatmeal soup. Looks good and would be easy to swap the stock and dairy.

I've only had overnight oats once and they were good, but I prefer to cook mine. The goopier, the better otherwise it's just not enough like porridge for me to enjoy.

I've come to love rolled oats with a tablespoon of chia, frozen berries, covered by soy milk by a bit over an inch and stirred well. By my breakfast break it's thick and creamy.

I like making steel cut oats overnight in my slow cooker. They're really nice with some dried fruit and hemp milk!

I also like roasting oats in a mix of maple syrup, cinnammon, and salt for granola...mmmm...toss just a few raisins in there and that's my perfect breakfast.

No Cook!

Hey There,

I have been eating oats for a few weeks now. I combine (gluten free) steel cut oats, rolled oats, and some chia seeds and flax seeds. If you combine everything and throw your fruit in, add water, and just let it sit over night. Chia seeds are wonderful at soaking up a ton of water so be sure to add a little more water and mix it up before you go to bed!

Actually, there is a raw version of oats. If you can find whole oat groats, they are the whole oat kernel and are raw. You can soak them overnight (at least 8 hours) and blend them with berries, banana, whatever else you desire. There is also a recipe for "oatgurt", which is raw oat groats soaked and then fermented over a period of 3 days until they take on a sourish yogurty yeasty taste. They become creamy sort of like yogurt. I tried this recipe once and it was surprisingly pretty good.

You can just soak steel cut, or even oat groats overnight in the fridge, and eat cold?
I think I'd like that

Yes, the steel cut are really good, haven't tried the groats. I use 2 cups plant milk, or juice, like orange and ombine with one cup steel cut oats. Can add dried or fresh fruit, seeds, nuts, peanut butter, maple syrup, etc. Keeps 3 days in the fridge but gets a bit gummy lol.

I usually let the rolled oats soak over night together with some chia seeds and almond milk. So delicious!

I add it to my cold breakfast cereal or warm it up in a pot. Or I put it in marmalade and praline sandwiches, or I add it to cakes.

I've never liked hot oatmeal; traumatized being force-fed porridge as a kid LOL >.<

However, I do love granola, so cold oats might just work for me! I can see it being a bit like a softer granola if you add some dried fruit and nuts; I'm willing to try (almost) anything once

Delicious oatmeal

I think it is fine to use oats to make your soup thicker, however I like to cook oat and eat it as an oatmeal/porridge. You can make so many different variations whether it is with fruits, nuts or any dry fruit

Yes, I like to use oats as a thickener, too. And in cookies too. Oats are very versatile!

I've started adding oats to my morning smoothies when I just have like one fruit and soy milk.
I think I'll try a masala chai smoothie-- like soy milk, oats garam masala and added tumeric--maybe matcha

The usual way i enjoy oat meal would be to boil milk, add sugar and then a few spoon of oats..
While i was in college a friend of mine taught me a tasty way to make oats..
While boiling milk, he would add chocolate flavored powder into it, add sugar and then add oats..
This would be so tasty and yummy.. I guess those who dont like to drink raw milk and oats can try this..
If you are vegan,, then you can replace milk with almond milk..
