Apple Barley Breakfast Cereal (2010.1)

2010 has arrived in full fashion. This year is the year of using all those recipes that I clip out of magazines - I have a TON! So, this week was something for breakfast (or I made it for breakfast).

1/2 cup barley - quick cooking
1 cup water (just follow directions on box)
1 apple (I used braeburn)
1 tsp unsalted butter
sprinkle of cinnamon
1 T lemon juice
1/8 tsp sugar

Cook barley. Saute apple in butter (chopped, I left peel on), sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and stir in lemon juice. Mix all together.
I eat mine cold with 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt on top and some cool whip. Good.
Unfortunately, not very filling which I'm surprised. But, good none the less and relatively healthy.
This recipe came from Cuisine At Home magazine. This definitely wasn't a keeper - but one to try nonetheless. And gets me trying new grains. And I had everything on hand as well.

This sounds good. I like barley but I don't know that I've eaten it alone for breakfast (I once tried a 5 grain hot cereal that had it in there). Always fun to experiment with new grains :)
