Here’s a simple, delicious breakfast for those cold winter mornings that appeals to even picky eaters. It warms the body and soul and takes virtually no time to make. While the recipe calls for cracked wheat, you could easily substitute almost any whole grain.
Cracked Wheat and Raisins
2 rice cooker cups cracked wheat, rinsed
4 rice cooker cups water
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, etc.)
Honey and milk
Put the wheat and water in a rice cooker. Cover and press down “on” button. Button will “click” up to “warm” when done, about 20 minutes. Unplug cooker. If you don’t have a rice cooker, put 1 ½ cups wheat and 3 cups water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until done or about 10 – 12 minutes.
Serve topped with raisins, nuts, a little honey and a splash of milk, if desired.
