Barley Porridge with Dates and Walnuts


Porridge made with barley is not familiar to everyone. This sweet porridge recipe comes from the Sacred Cookbook- Forgotten Healing Recipes of the Ancients. You will find other delicious, little-known old "ethnic" recipes from all over the world in this collection.

Barley Porridge
Serves 2-4

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/4 cups organic barley flour
4 cups almond milk, or other milk of choice
sea salt
6 large medjool dates, pitted and chopped
2/3 cups chopped walnuts
4 tablespoons raw honey (other sweetener, like maple syrup, for children under 1 year)

METHOD:

1. Whisk the barley flour in the almond milk over medium heat in a medium size pot. Be sure to bring all the flour into play and stir until smooth and beginning to bubble.
2. Turn the heat down as boil begins and allow the porridge to simmer gently for about 5 minutes. (Watch to prevent burning, whisk if needed)
3. Remove from heat, salt to taste, and spoon porridge into bowls. Add the dates, walnuts and honey as desired. (And our family always adds berries).


4. Enjoy!

Rita adds:
I have been on my plantbased journey for about 30 years. It has been a very enjoyable journey. Soon after I made the change I went away to school to learn how to help people change their lives for the better using food, herbs, and water therapy.

I have since learned about the study of Nutrigenomics and how nutrition can have not only an impact on your cells but your genes as well. I realize that our genes are the gun but our choices pull the trigger.

It has been such a blessing to help people make changes and experience a positive impact on their bodies. Enjoy this recipe and may you feel joy and happiness as you eat it!
