Subject:  re: Instant Oatmeal on Shabbos
Message:  Message: Can I prepare instant oatmeal(just add hot water) on shabbos? I belive it is precooked and dried.

What about things like Tradition brand cup-a-soup or mac & cheese with instant noodles? Instant couscous?

Please answer ASAP...it's supposed to be real cold this shabbos!

Thank you.

Reply: Instant foods that you add hot water, no problem.

I understand that there is no cooking problem. But why is there no kneading problem? (Lash) You are mixing a dry powdery/flaky substance with water to make a thick goo. Isn't that kneading?

Please answer. I'm honestly asking a question.

Thank you,

Reply:  It isn't kneading. There is no kneading needed here, just mixing it.

The only Lush I can see is that guy who drinks scotch with his herring every morning in Shul.
