Get a cup of oats.
Put the cup of oats and the cup of water in the pot and set it to medium high heat on the stove.
In about 3-5 minutes the oats will start to boil and froth, this is a signal to turn the heat down to low. Give the oats a stir to get an idea of the thickness.
Let the oats boil for about 5 more minutes, and give them a stir to see if they feel thick and gooey, when they are, the oats are done and you have oatmeal. Experiment with the amount of water, ranging between 1 and 2 cups. Use 1 cup if you like thicker oatmeal, and 2 cups if you like more of a soupy oatmeal. Feel free to garnish with dried fruits, nuts, or spices like cinnamon, cardamon, and caraway.
The photo is mine and the recipe is a common one.
