They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but so often, by the time you wake up for work, you're scrambling just to grab a cup of coffee on your way out the door. Hitting snooze on your alarm might feel like the right thing to do, but can leave your stomach growling at you for sustenance.
Instead of struggling to wake up even earlier than you have to, try cooking oatmeal overnight with this sous vide recipe. Just think, after you have briefly prepped everything in vacuum sealed bags, you simply have to let them cook while you sleep. By the time you wake up, you can enjoy a ready-made breakfast.
Sous-Vide Overnight Oatmeal
Start to finish: 6 hours (30 minute prep)
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 3 1/2 cups water
- Dash of salt
- Dash of cinnamon
- 3/4 cup dried fruit (i.e., cherries, blueberries, raisins, apricots and cranberries)
- Zest of 1/2 lemon
- Zest of 1/2 orange
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 drops vanilla extract
- Preheat a water bath to 155 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Combine oatmeal, 3 cups of water, salt and cinnamon in one vacuum sealed bag. Using a separate vacuum sealed bag, combine the dried fruit, sugar, and remaining 1/2 cup of water, vanilla extract, lemon zest and orange zest.
- Place both bags into the hot water bath in your countertop appliance. Allow them to cook for six hours before removing them. Combine the contents of both bags and serve immediately.
