Ingredients

  • 4 cups water

  • 1 cup steel-cut oats

  • 1 apple - peeled, cored, and chopped

  • ½ cup shredded carrot

  • ½ cup raisins

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ¾ cup chopped pecans

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • ½ cup plain yogurt

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan, and stir in the oats. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook oats until they begin to thicken, about 10 minutes; mix in the apple, carrot, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Let the oats simmer until tender, about 20 more minutes.

  2. While the oats are simmering, melt butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pecans. Toast the nuts until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 5 minutes, then sprinkle with brown sugar and stir until sugar has melted and coated the pecans.

  3. Serve in bowls, each topped with about 2 tablespoons of the pecan mixture and a dollop of yogurt.
