Hafragrautur / Oats Porridge - Iceland

Hafragrautur, or oatmeal is a staple diet of Icelandic families.

Oats and water or milk are mixed in a pot, left to simmer. Hafragrautur is usually served with a sprinkle of brown sugar or  a handful of raisins or a small cube of butter. This bowl of porridge really brighten our day, because in our we love oats.
