I really am a creature of habit. I have oatmeal almost everyday of the year. Yes, hot and hot coffee. When I am traveling I bring along oatmeal packs or eat BoBo Bars.
I had been making batches of oatmeal in the slow cooker until I found that you can make it in the pressure cooker. It’s easy and fast (under 30 minutes).
I usually make enough for 5-6 days. Having a breakfast that I just need to heat up makes my mornings go smoother.
My favorite oatmeal to make this way is Bob’s Redmill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats. I like to use a one to one ratio for the Oatmeal, one cup water for every one cup of oatmeal. I usually make a batch of 3 cups of oatmeal which gives me around 6 servings.
I store it in a container in the refrigerator and take some out each morning. It would work too to store it in glass single serve containers to be reheated individually.
I add a non-dairy milk, cinnamon and brown sugar to enjoy each morning. With hot coffee of course.
3 cups Oatmeal (I use Bob’s Redmill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats)
3 cups Water
Put Oatmeal and water in the Instapot or pressure cooker.
Set the pressure cooker to 8-10 minutes on the rice setting.
Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then open and enjoy!
I store in the refrigerator and take some out each morning to have for breakfast. It could also be stored in single serve glass containers to be heated up in the morning, a little bit more time saved in your day. – Susan
Life seems to get busier with every season. Everyone says “enjoy it the kids will be out of the house before you know it.” Part of enjoying the time is not stressing over dinner. Easier said than done with so much going on and so many foods to avoid, I had read that pasta in a pressure cooker was easy. I was skeptical but it turned out really well.
I browned the ground beef on the stove instead of using the sauté mode of the pressure cooker. I just find it easier. You could definitely do this the day before or earlier in the day.
I still feel new to the world of pressure cookers. I haven’t been wow’d by everything I’ve made and there are a few recipes that I am hoping to improve upon.
I have started buying dried beans and making them in my pressure cooker. For the black beans for the quinoa soup I put about 2 cups of beans in the pressure cooker and covered them with water about two inches above the beans. I then cooked them for 25 minutes on high pressure. I let it depressurize for 30 minutes then spooned then out into mason jars and covered them with the cooking liquid.
Making the Chili helped me check one thing off my January 2019 Wish List. And the rest of the black beans will be made into brownies!
