quick slow-food oatmeal

I have discovered the perfect quick slow-food breakfast. I take a half cup of steel-cut organic oats, add a half cup of water, soak overnight, then microwave it in the morning for two minutes. I add some maple syrup and cream, and it's dreamy. It has way more heft than instant oatmeal, it's super-fast, and it's incredibly inexpensive.

Another similar, excellent approach is to throw the steel-cut (aka Irish) oatmeal into a crock-pot with the water and milk/cream, and cook on low overnight. Very rich and creamy, and even less work to do in the morning than your method! (I certainly wouldn't attempt to operate a microwave before noon.)

This is a good recipe:
