1/2 cup oats
water (usually about twice as much as the oats).
chopped walnuts (say, 1-2 Tbsp per serving)
chopped apple or pear if you have one (optional)
raisins or chopped figs for sweetening
soy milk or other non-dairy milk (optional)
chopped spinach (optional--yes, it is good!)
Cook the oatmeal until it tastes how you like it. I like it well-cooked so I often go 30 minutes for the steel cut oats. Or better than that, if you have time, let it get hot or boil, then soak for 20-whatever minutes, and then it will cook quicker and taste better. Add more water or soy milk as it gets too thick. Stir a lot at the beginning to prevent clumping. About half-way through you can add the fruit and nuts and raisins and soy milk and spinach. When the oatmeal is done, add the berries---if frozen, add them earlier.
