3 cups water
1 pch salt
1 cup steel-cut oats
Bring water and salt to a boil in medium saucepan. Stir in oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the grains have absorbed most of the water. Remove from heat and serve immediately, or if a thicker texture is desired, cover saucepan and let sit for a few minutes.
As an added treat, toss in some raisins, chopped dates or other dried or fresh fruits and nuts just before serving."
