Ingredients for 2
1/2 cup (118 mL) whole grain like quinoa, brown rice or steel-cut oats
3/4 cup (177 mL) warm water
1/2 teaspoon (2.46 mL) kosher salt
Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 180ºF (82.2ºC).
Add whole grain of your choice to one pint-sized canning jar. If cooking quinoa or rice, add 3/4 cup warm water. If cooking oats, add 1 cup warm water. Stir in salt. Place lid and band on jar and seal until just tight (do not over-tighten jar; air will still need to escape).
Add the jar to the water bath while the water is heating. When the water reaches 180ºF (82.2ºC), set the timer for 3 hours.
When the timer goes off, remove the jar from the water bath and transfer to a cooling rack or towel. Carefully remove the lid. Serve or let cool to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator.
