Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine oats, water and salt in a jar or bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  • In the morning, heat the oats if desired. Stir in raisins, cashews and curry powder.


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.

To make ahead: When prepping oatmeal the night before, measure, toast and chop ingredients for the topping.
