Steel Cut Oats (wheat-free) & Creamy Rice Cereal (wheat- & gluten-free)

Posted Oct 25 2008 4:48pm

One of my husband Tom's favorite breakfast grains is steel-cut oats. They're heartier than regular oatmeal and he likes it because it has a nuttier taste. As soon as the there is a hint of fall in the air, we go from regular oatmeal to steel cut.

Steel-cut oats are oat groats that have been cut so they are pretty close to a whole grain.

Hearty Steel Cut Oats
3 cups of water
1 cup of steel-cut oatmeal
1 apple, cut into small pieces
pinch of sea salt
dash of cinnamon (optional)

Bring water to a boil on high flame, slowly stir in oatmeal and a pinch of sea salt. Return to boil, turn heat to low, and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Makes 2-3 servings.

Optional: Nuts, seeds or dried fruit make a nice topping.

Note: This breakfast is wheat-free, but contains gluten. For both wheat- and gluten-free (and soy!), see below:


I decided to add this wheat and gluten-free recipe for a friend and blogger Liz or VeggieGirl, who is vegan and wheat- and gluten-free.

My son's friend Letecia was visiting this weekend and she is trying wheat-, gluten- and soy-free after becoming sensitive to many foods while taking an antibiotic. This looked very appetizing to me.

Creamy Brown Rice Cereal
1 cup cooked brown rice (can be leftover)
1/3 cups hemp milk (soy, rice milk or water could be substituted)
1/2 apple, cut into small pieces
cinnamon & nutmeg (optional)

Heat brown rice, hemp milk and apple in a pan on medium heat, stirring occasionally for 5-10 minutes. Top with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Enjoy! Something for everyone!
