Strawberry Nutella Oatmeal

Yield: 4-6 servings 

3 cups water
1 cup low-fat milk
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 cup steel-cut oats
¼ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. brown sugar

For serving:
4-6 tbsp. chocolate hazelnut spread
Fresh sliced strawberries

Combine the water and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a 10- or 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the oats and toast, stirring occasionally, until golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir the toasted oats into the simmering liquid. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently until the mixture is very thick, about 20 minutes. Stir in the salt and brown sugar. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the oatmeal is creamy, about 10 minutes more. Remove from the heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.*

Portion the oatmeal into serving bowls. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon of chocolate hazelnut spread and swirl gently into the oatmeal with a knife or a spoon. Garnish each serving with a handful of sliced strawberries. Serve immediately.

*The oatmeal can be prepared up to this point and refrigerated for later meals. I reheat each serving in the microwave in short intervals, adding in splashes of milk until the texture is sufficiently creamy and not at all dry.
