Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup Irish steel-cut oats
  • 1 Teaspoon harissa
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 scallions, sliced thinly
  • 1/3 Cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions

The night before, bring 2 ½ cups water to a boil in a saucepan. Then, pour in the oats immediately and simmer for 1 minute. Cover the saucepan, let cool, then place in the refrigerator overnight.

The following morning, pour 1 cup water into the oatmeal and warm over low heat, stirring occasionally with a spatula to loosen the oats. Serve slightly al dente to retain the unique texture of the oats.

Meanwhile, mix together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl to make the topping. Divide the warm oatmeal and topping among 4 bowls. Serve immediately.
