How to Cook Oats
Whether you’re a beginner at cooking oats or looking at ways others may be cooking them to experiment or refine your routine, we’d love to show you how to cook oats today. Cooking with Gloriously Free Oats is very quick and easy. At GF Oats, we’ve almost mastered the art of doing so, if we do say so ourselves!
We have worked with the growers at GF Harvest over the years to produce a rolled and steamed oat that is soft and absorbs moisture easily. Free from any gluten contamination, not only will these oats taste great but they’ll appease everyone including those with food intolerances.
It is not a quick oat, but a flexible one, as you can pop them in your blender to break the oats down further. This will allow them to cook even faster if that is what assists your morning routine. However, even in their original form, our oats will cook quickly and in only minutes.
(this is my favourite way, not a big fan of microwave cooked food)
- Measure out a serve that suits you into a cooking pot eg. 40-60 or ½ to 1 cup.
- Add in ½ cup of water per ½ cup of oats and a pinch of salt.
- Preparing your oats the night before and leaving them to soak overnight will ensure that they are easier to digest, check out our article “How to soak your Oats”. The rolled oat is lovely and moist as they draw up the liquid and will cook very quickly for you.
- Cook on a medium heat stirring periodically so the oats do not burn. If the oats start to dry out, add in some more water or your preferred milk or milk alternative.
- Once the oats are of a creamy consistency it is cooked.
- Follow the quantities above and add to a microwave dish.
- Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on high.
- Cooking time may vary but take the oats out and stir or add more liquid and then cook again for another minute until it is soft and creamy in consistency.
We hope you enjoyed these quick walk-throughs on how you can cook your oats at home! Let us know if you have any particular differences to your oat-making routine, as we’d love to know.
