Simple oatmeal.


Sugarless pancake syrup
1/4 – cup Condensed milk
1 – cup whole oats
1 3/4 – or so cups Water

Bring water to a boil.
Add the oats and stir into the water.
Once the oats are immersed turn down the heat to about medium.
Stir every 2 minutes or so.
After 5 to 6 minutes, the oats should have soaked up all the liquid and be soft.
Turn off the heat.
Add the milk and the syrup.

Most people say you do not need to soak legumes before cooking. Unless, we are in a hurry then we usually do not. Personally the yield seems to be larger when you do pre-soak legumes such as lentils.  We like to immerse lentils in warm water from the tap with a little bit of baking soda. Cooking time is reduced, therefore you save on energy. Be also sure to drain the lentils and use fresh water for boiling.

By the say, do not leave theme there too long or they will start to ferment. That is another story.

Roughing it.
