June 2011: Barley and Pears

A guest post by Nurture
Feel like experimenting with different grains for breakfast?  Here’s a fast, tasty recipe: Barley and Pears. (Think oatmeal and applesauce.)  We prepare it in a rice cooker using barley flakes – barley kernels that have been sliced and rolled flat very much like rolled oats.  They cook up light with a hint of nuttiness.  A peeled, chopped pear adds great texture and a dash of cardamom gives it fragrance and spice.  Finish it off with a squeeze of lemon juice, a pat of butter, a sprinkle or two of brown sugar, a handful of almonds and breakfast is ready!  View the full recipe in PDF format in English or Spanish.
