1/1 Photo of Five Grain Hot Cereal
I love whole grain cereals! This is a hearty and healthy way to start the morning. I got this off the internet and changed it a bit.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1You need a blender(or food processor, or better yet, a coffee grinder) to make this recipe.
- 2Get out your coffee grinder.
- 3Measure the dry oatmeal into it.
- 4Whirl the oatmeal until it is powdery, like flour.
- 5Dump the oatmeal into a mixing bowl.
- 6Measure the barley into the blender.
- 7Process it until powdery.
- 8Dump it into the bowl with the oatmeal.
- 9Measure the brown rice into the blender.
- 10Process it until powdery.
- 11The rice will take longer processing than the oatmeal or barley.
- 12It will be a tiny bit coarser after blending too, that is alright.
- 13When it is as powdery as you can get it, dump it into the bowl with the other grains.
- 14Add the whole wheat flour and the cornmeal, along with the sesame seeds, is using.
- 15Stir the mixture up to combine it thoroughly.
- 16Transfer the mixture to a resealable container and label.
- 17Store on the pantry shelf.
- 18Makes 3 1/4 cups.
- 19To Cook: 1/3 cup 5 Grain Cereal, 1 cup cold tap water, Dash Salt, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar(or 1 tbls. honey).
- 20In a small saucepan combine the cereal and cold water.
- 21You use cold water because it prevents lumps.
- 22Add the salt and brown sugar.
- 23Bring to a boil over high heat.
- 24Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for about 3 to 5 minutes.
- 25Serve with milk.
- 26Makes 1 serving.
- 27To make 4 servings, use 1 cup of 5 Grain Cereal, 3 cups of cold tap water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/3 cup brown sugar.
- 28This is a very healthy and hearty way to start the morning.
- 29I like this cereal much better than most other mixed grain cereals I have tried.
- 30The rice gives the cooked cereal a nice chewy texture which contrasts nicely with the smoothness of the whole wheat flour and cornmeal.
- 31If you don't have quick barley, you can replace it with more oatmeal, or even wheat germ, or wheat bran.
- 32I've also thought that Rye Flour might make a nice addition, although I have never tried it.
- 33This cereal is an excellent source of B vitamins and fiber.
