Organic Gluten Free Rolled Oats - 1kg
On a wholegrain diet?
Rolled oats are steamed whole oats that have been rolled flat into flakes and then dehydrated.
The oats get partially cooked during the steaming process so that is why it cooks much faster when we cook rolled oats. Rolled oats still retain a lot of the bran and are fairly high in fiber.
Exposure to steam and oxygen during the processing may causes many of the delicate nutrients to be lost. Therefore this might not be your choice of oats if you are after the optimal nutrients.
How to use whole oats
Rolled oats cook extremely fast compared to whole oats or steel cut oats.
It can be cooked in about 3 minutes in the microwave or 5-10 minutes on the stove top. The cracks on the rolled oats expose the starch and makes a soft creamy texture once cooked.
Rolled oats are not only good for hot breakfast porridge but also can be used in sourdough breads and other baked goods for added texture. They also make a great decorative topping for muffins and bread.
1 cup whole oats
2 cups water or stock
A pinch of salt
1. Combine the oats and water and bring the water and oats to a boil over high heat. Keep an eye on the pot so that you can catch it before it boils over.
2. When the oats has reached a boil, lower the heat to a low simmer for 5-10 minutes. The oat is done when it has doubled in volume and is soft yet chewy. Add more water if the pan becomes dry before the oats have finished cooking.
