Ol’fashioned Oatmeal, of course

It wouldn’t be right not to include the traditional breakfast cereal for what is considered to be the most important meal of the day. Here is a classic recipe you can enjoy every day of the week:

2 cups boiling water
1 cup oats, rolled, steel cut, or otherwise

After water comes to boil, slowly add oats, stirring constantly.
Keep watch as you stir, and after 5 or 6 minutes, oats should be soft and milky. Steel cut oats may take a few minutes longer. If they become dry, add some water or soy/ rice milk, and continue stirring.

They are now ready for you to just add:
* Raisins, cherries, blueberries, peaches (dried/fresh)
* chopped nuts, shredded coconut
* Seeds (sesame, sunflower, pumpkin)
* a dab of vegan margarine and some soy, almond, oat, rice or multi-grain milk.

Hominy Grits can be used in place of rice or as breakfast cereal. To cook: add 1/4 cup grits to 3/4 cup boiling water, simmer for 7-10 minutes. Add salt, Sucanat, maple syrup, dairy-free milk to taste. (Serves One.)
