DIRECTIONS

  • The grains need to equal 1 cup, so I used heaping tablespoons. The flaxseeds are in addition to the 1 cup. You can use any dried fruit and nuts you like and any combination of grains as long as the grain to water ratio is 1:3. Next time I make it, I think I'm going to try adding brown rice and quinoa into the mix. I'm also thinking of grinding the grains in the blender to make more of a creamy cereal, but I honestly don't know it that will work or not.
  • Boil water. Stir in grains and flaxseeds. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in fruit and nuts. Cover and continue to cook for 15 minutes. Serve with a little soy milk and your good to go! Store leftovers in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!
