Doug's Al Dente Oatmeal

4 cups

You can make this recipe as rich or sweet as you like by varying the toppings.


  • Pinch of coarse salt

  • 2 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water and the salt to a boil. Stir in the oats, lower heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 7 minutes. Strain immediately under very hot water to rinse away excess starch. Serve hot with the toppings of your choice.
