Creamy Wheat Berry Hot Cereal

Creamy Wheat Berry Hot Cereal

This warming whole-grain porridge pairs cooked wheat berries with rolled oats, fruit and nuts for a filling, fiber-rich breakfast. Using a microwave makes preparation speedy, especially if you’ve thawed frozen cooked wheat berries overnight in the refrigerator.

Serves 4

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups nonfat milk, or reduced-fat soymilk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups Cooked Wheat Berries, (recipe follows)
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place oats, raisins, milk (or soymilk) and salt in a large, microwave-safe bowl. (No microwave? See Stovetop Variation.) Stir to combine. Microwave on High, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in cooked wheat berries and microwave again until hot, 1 to 2 minutes more. Let stand for 1 minute. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve. Stovetop Variation: Bring milk (or soymilk) to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in oats, raisins and salt. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in cooked wheat berries and cook until heated through, about 1 minute more. Remove from the heat. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon; let stand for 1 minute. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
