Steel-cut oatmeal with almonds and jam for an easy breakfast on Meatless Monday

No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as incentive to join the growing movement, every week we're offering an animal-free recipe.

You may think that you hate oatmeal, but if you've only eaten that instant abomination, then you should really give steel-cut oats a try. Nutty instead of bland, chewy instead of gummy, they're much more nutritious (and filling) and, although not instant, very easy to make.
