An interesting sounding whole foods breakfast. Particularly if you grind your own wheat, it could be nice to try. I have amended the salt amounts based on reviews.
- Bring 3 cups of water to a boil.
- Mix together the extra 1 cup of water, ground wheat and salt.
- Add them to the boiling water, stirring constantly while it thickens to avoid lumps.
- Reduce the heat and cook it for 15-20 minutes.
- Serve with milk or soy milk or honey or molasses.
I quartered the recipe for 1 person. I used just a pinch of salt and it cooked up nicely. I ground up whole wheat berries in the coffee grinder. I had with a spoonful of honey. Lovely breakfast. Thanks! I ate it up before I realized I hadn't taken a photo!
I love cracked wheat cereal (that's what we call this yummy cereal. I've been meaning to make some and this spurred me on. I am giving this 5 stars because I know how yummy it is if you use less salt, which is what I did today when using your recipe but I would reduce the amount of salt by at least 1/2 (I think the amount might be a typo) Yummy healthy recipe and actually very quick!
Tasty, unique, easy and delightfully healthy. BF is still raving about how much he enjoyed ladypit's Kamut Pancakes (#75548), so I figured this recipe made with freshly ground whole grains might be a hit as well. I made a half recipe (3 servings) for breakfast for BF and myself this morning and we both enjoyed it very much. I ground up some soft wheat berries in my coffee grinder to a fairly course grind (not quite flour, but not too chunky either), which was just lovely. I did not use the full amount of salt called for- I just put in a couple shakes from my salt shaker. If you're serving this as a sweet-type breakfast dish, I see no reason to add all that salt. We both had ours with milk and I had mine with honey and BF had his with maple syrup. The serving size in the end was quite small- BF and I had 1.5 servings each, and it was still not very much, although quite filling for its size. We enjoyed this a lot, though, and it is something I would certainly make again, though it did do a number on the pot I cooked it in. Thanks!
