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.
1 1/4 cups organic barley flour
4 cups almond milk, or other milk of choice
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)
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).
