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.

Oatmeal Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Oatmeal Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
