Grains aren't just reserved for dinner. Here nutrient and fiber packed oats and barley combine in a fruit studded, stick to the ribs cereal. If you want to make this the night before, reheat it the next day in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water. Quick cooking barley and barley flakes are available in well stocked grocery and supermarkets.
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 cup milk
- 3 ounces regular rolled oats
- 3 ounces quick-cooking barley or barley flakes
- 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 3 ounces chopped dried fruit such as dates, apricots, apples, pears, prunes, or raisins
- Milk (optional)
Bring water to boil in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the oats, barley, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Return to boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in the dried fruit. Cook until the barley is tender, about 7 minutes longer. Serve hot with milk, if desired, or cover and refrigerate for serving later.
