DIRECTIONS

  • For the crockpot method: Mix the first four ingredients (barley, quinoa, salt and water) and cook on low overnight.
  • For the stovetop method: Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Then simmer covered for about 40 minutes, until all the water is absorbed.
  • For both methods continue from here: Fluff with a fork and put into serving dishes.
  • Add sweetener, dried fruits and spices, as desired. Basically, as you would like for oatmeal. Similar. Serve with milk or yogurt if desired.
  • For Vegan omit the milk and yogurt or sub non dairy milk such as soy milk.
