Another easy application for malted wheat is at breakfast. Take these three grains:
½ cup malted wheat berries
½ cup pearl barley
½ cup long grain rice
Place the grains in a sauce pot with 3 cups water and a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. Once water boils, cover pot and turn heat down to low. Cook until grains absorb all the water, about 10 min. Leave the lid on during this process, as it will help keep the essential steam from escaping to quickly. When grains are cooked, add a tablespoon of butter and its ready to serve as a hot breakfast cereal.
We serve this with a shot of cream and brown sugar. But you can add your own interest to it; trail mix, dried fruit, honey, etc. While most hot breakfast cereals like oatmeal or grits tend to be mushy, this dish is chewy and full of plump grain texture.
Good food does not have to be complicated.
