Barley cereal is healthy and can help you lose weight. From Psychology Today magazine, here is a recipe for making your own Barley Harvest Cereal.
I'd be interested in hearing back from anyone who tries it.
The following recipe makes 8 servings. Total cook time is 2 hours.
½ cup wild rice
1 cup "pearl" barley (sold in most supermarkets)
½ cup steel-cut oats (Irish oatmeal)
½ cup raisins
½ cup chopped pitted dates
¼ cup walnuts
1 tbsp. butter
¾ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375°F. Simmer 2 cups water and wild rice for 20 minutes. Drain. Mix rice and all remaining ingredients together in a baking dish.
Cover loosely with foil and bake until grains are tender, water is absorbed, and cereal is creamy, stirring occasionally (about 1½ hours).
If you don't like to cook, another option is to simply purchase ready-made cereal from your local grocery.
