How to Cook Groats

If you're looking for a nutritious and filling breakfast option, perhaps one that is a little different from traditional porridge, groat oats are an excellent choice. Here's how to cook them to perfection:

  1. Soak the groat oats: Soak the groat oats in water overnight to help soften them and reduce cooking time. Alternatively, you can soak them for a few hours before cooking.

  2. Boil the groat oats: In a medium-sized saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the soaked groat oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the groats are tender.

  3. Season the groat oats: Once the groats are cooked, season them to your liking with salt, butter, and any other desired toppings such as honey, fruit, or nuts.

  4. Enjoy! Serve the groat oats hot and enjoy a nutritious and satisfying breakfast.

Cooked groats can be stored in the fridge for a few days and reheated when you need them. You can also add milk for a creamier flavour.
