A healthy start to the week!
We often get stuck on what to have for breakfast that is a little ‘different’. Somedays I really don’t feel like another bowl of brand name cereal or a slice of toast with whatever….
Keep forgetting that we can actually use any grain as a breakfast option – quinoa, couscous, brown rice and BARLEY! So this is my version of ‘comfort food’ for breakfast. Will work great with brown rice as well
75g cooked barley (I cooked a big batch last night, froze it into individual portions to be used in my meals during the next week or so, so look out for a few ‘barley’ recipes coming up!)
125ml fat free milk
1 cinnamon stick
5ml honey for serving
Gently simmer barley, raisins and cinnamon stick until barley is more ‘mushy’ and most of the milk is reduced/evaporated.
Serve with honey and enjoy!
