  1. Combine water (or milk) and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in oats and reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally, until the oats are the desired texture, 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Serve with your favorite toppings, such as milk, sweetener, cinnamon, dried fruits or nuts.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
