    For highest benefits and best assimilation, porridge should be soaked overnight or even longer. Ancient recipes from Wales and Brittany called for a 24-hr soaking. Once soaked, oatmeal cooks up in less than 5 minutes – truly a fast food!
    Mix oats and salt with water mixture; cover and let stand at room temperature for at least 7 hours and as long as 24 hours. Bring additional 1 cup of water to boil. Add soaked oats. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer several minutes.
    Meanwhile, grind flaxseeds in a mini-grinder. Off heat (flaxseeds denature when heated), stir in flaxseeds and let stand for a few minutes. Serve with organic butter or organic cream thinned with a little water, and a natural sweetener like Sucanat, date sugar, maple syrup, or raw honey.

    Brief Description

    I buy the oats in the bulk bins at the healthfood store, but I usually use brown rice hot cereal instead of oats. Soaking the grains 7-24 hours makes the nutrients more readily available to your body, and it makes them super-fast to cook!!
