I rarely get around to using Barley, it just seems to take so long to cook compared with other grains. But in an effort to experiment more with introducing other grains into breakfast I pre cooked a batch to eat during the week. This makes it much quicker to use for brekkie – so here is my first barley inspired brekkie bowl. A great substitute for oats if you fancy something a little different.
Cinnamon & nutmeg Barley Bowl (serves one)
- 100g cooked barley
- 100ml almond milk
- 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Nutmeg – a good grating or 1/2 teaspoon ground
- 1 tablespoon coconut yoghurt or coconut cream.
- 1 banana
Put the barley, milk, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg into a pan and bring to the boil. Turn it down and add the tablespoon of yoghurt or cream. Simmer for 3-4 minutes – keep checking it doesn’t run out of liquid and burn.
Just before serving slice a banana and mix it through. Sprinkle a bit more nutmeg on top.
