I made this a few days ago. Wanted to put it in the crockpot, but forgot, so when I got up I did it on the stove top just like I would brown rice. It was perfect! I made as written although I did add dried cranberries to it and ate with un-sweet Almond milk over it. It warmed me nicely with all the cold weather we have had. Thanks for a great, hearty breakfast! Next time I'm going to try the crock pot.
This was really delicious! I didn't have any barley, so I used 4 1/2 tbs bulgur wheat instead. I also left out the apple (not a big apple fan) and substituted dried cranberries and dates. I made this Sunday afternoon and have been reheating small portions every morning for an easy, quick breakfast! I add a splash of milk and a sprinkling of wheat bran and cinnamon chips when reheating and it's great!!
I had every intention of making this exactly like the recipe said the first time, but was out of bulgur wheat. I tripled the recipe (I have a big crockpot) and subbed whole white wheat for the bulgur. Cooked this for 7 hrs on low and it was perfect. Next time I'm going to rinse the quinoa before I put it in. I forgot I was supposed to. The kids loved it with a little sucanat for sweetening. I'm going to add this to our breakfast rotation - I love the variety of grains in here! Thanks for such a simple and good recipe!
Easy, delicious. I made this with the intention of having leftovers to heat up every morning before work ... perfect! I didn't have barley or quinoa, but I had wild rice and polenta. Definitely will make again! Thanks
This is really good. I'll be making it regularly as I always pack breakfast to eat at work. I did add some sweetener. Next time I may add another apple.
This is now my FAVORITE hot cereal! Tasty goodness and nutritious too! I halved the amount of cinnamon (a personal preference) and substituted buckwheat for the bulgur and barley to make it gluten free. It didn't need any additional water in the morning. Thanks for a great recipe!
I took this in to work and everyone loved it! Didnt have to change anything.
Liked it. Tasty and filling. I used couscous instead of quinoa because I just like it better, and I used dates instead of apples. It definitely needed added water in the morning. And I"m glad I have a non-stick crockpot because it would have been a mess to clean up otherwise. I served it with a little milk and some sweetener. Thanks for the recipe. I love my grains!
Tried it n' found it to be delicious n' easy...thanks for a great recipe.
