  • 2 cups McCann’s® Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (or butter)
  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 5-6 cups hot unsalted defatted chicken or beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • pinch saffron for color (optional)
  1. Heat olive oil in heavy saucepan over medium high heat. When hot, add shallots and garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in the oats and sauté for about 5 minutes or until oats are glistening.
  2. Begin by adding the hot broth 1/2 cup at a time (and saffron if used), stirring continuously, until each 1/2 cup has been absorbed. When oats have absorbed enough broth to be a rich, creamy texture with a bit of chewiness left, remove from heat.
  3. Stir in parsley, lemon juice, cheese, salt and pepper.
  4. Serve hot.
