Today, I’m having my tea in my Vegan Earl Grey Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oats and let me tell you it’s delicious there too.
I am crazy about my Earl Grey tea. I have it almost every chilly morning. Once I add in some vanilla nondairy milk, and I’m in London Fog heaven. It also makes the best iced tea too!
If you were a fan of the old Instant Pot recipe, don’t panic, it’s moved to Plant Based Instant Pot here. If you’ve tried crockpot steel-cut oats and aren’t a fan because of the softer texture, you’ll love the chewiness that you’ll get cooking them in the Instant Pot.
Not a fan of rose flavors? You can use vanilla in its place in your Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oats. But if you want to you could try some lavender extract too.
What’s the Texture of Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats?
Slow cooker steel cut oats break down from the long cooking time and are extra creamy. If you hate creamy oats, then try them in the Instant Pot where they are extra chewy.
Vegan Earl Grey Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oats w/ Rosewater
This is a variation on my original recipe for a small slow cooker. If you can use rooibos tea you can add the bags in to cook overnight. But for green or black tea warm the nondairy milk on the stove, then steep the tea bags for the recommended amount of time (black tea around 4 minutes, or green tea about 3 minutes). Remove the tea bags and uses the infused milk to cook the oatmeal with. **Note: this recipe uses a smaller slow cooker that's 1½ to 2 quarts
- 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
- 2 cups unsweetened nondairy milk
- 2 teabags red tea Earl Grey black or green tea will over-steep as it cooks
- 1/2 teaspoon rosewater
- 1 to 2 tablespoon s sweetener of your choice
The night before
Spray your crock with some oil to help with clean up later.
Add everything but rosewater and sweetener. If using rooibos tea you can even add the tea bag If you are using black or green brew it in the nondairy milk firs, like in the headnote.
- Cook on low overnight (7 to 9 hours).
In the morning
Stir your oatmeal well. It may seem watery at the top but if stirred it should become a more uniform consistency.
- Stir in rosewater and sweetener to taste.
