SWEET BARLEY CEREAL

Yields1 Serving

Chinese barley and brown sugar both support a healthy digestive system. Cook with almonds for additional Lung support.

 ½ cup Chinese barley
 1 tablespoon brown sugar
 2 ½ cups water
 ¼ cup almonds
 vanilla extract
 blueberries or other berries
1

In a saucepan, combine the barley, brown sugar and water. Boil gently, partly covered, for 45 minutes. Note that cooking the barley with the sugar softens its taste.

2

While the barley is cooking, cover the almonds with water in a separate saucepan and boil gently for 5 minutes.

3

Drain the almonds and pull off the skins when cool enough.

4

Set aside the skinned almonds and add to the barley for the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

5

Remove from heat.

6

Place the mixture in a blender and add the vanilla extract. Add more water if needed.

7

Pulse the mixture a few times so the consistency is still chewy.

8

Place in a bowl and serve with berries.
