Simple Barley Preparation

Friday, August 14, 2015

Barley is a great whole grain and a nice departure from oatmeal in the morning. Use it in place of rice for many savory dishes as well.


1 cup barley
3 cups water
pinch salt

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add barley and a pinch of salt, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook partially covered until liquid is absorbed and barley is tender, 20 minutes or so.

For a great breakfast, add local honey or maple syrup to taste, a bit of milk, a sprinkle of nuts and a grating of nutmeg. Breakfast of champions!
