Although oatmeal isn't the most interesting breakfast food, it is one of the healthiest.
According to Fortune Business Insights, the worldwide oatmeal market, which was valued at $2.4 billion in 2019, is expected to grow to $3.5 billion by 2027 as a result of rising consumer demand for quick and wholesome breakfast options, which has been driven by the pandemic.
Oats are typically cooked in milk or water to make oatmeal. But quick-cooking overnight oats provide a no-cook option by simply soaking the grains in milk for the entire night.
Cook oats in steeped tea
The best approach to change your oatmeal is to substitute brewed tea for the water. A saucepan, some water, and some tea bags are all that are needed. The Kitchn advises steeping a few tea bags in boiling water for a few minutes before removing them and cooking oats.
Any type of tea will work, including decaffeinated herbal, floral white, malty black, toasted oolong, spiced chai, herbaceous green, and white.
Add chopped fruit, toasted almonds, chocolate bits, Greek yoghurt, dollops of jam, or even a drop of a sweetener like maple syrup to your porridge to add flavour and texture.
