Naked Barley Porridge

Naked Barley Porridge

by Nick Saltmarsh February 28, 2017 1 Comment

Naked Barley Flakes make perfect porridge - just substitute them for rolled oats in your favourite porridge recipe. We like to add a couple of tablespoons of Chia Seeds too. Here's our simple porridge recipe…

The nutty, malty flavour of Naked Barley Flakes makes for a tasty and sustaining porridge.

Naked barley flakes provide a very nutritious breakfast. They're a rich source of complex carbohydrates, particularly beta-glucan soluble fibre which has been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels. They have a high protein level too, often 15% more protein than normal barley, and a low glycemic index.

For an extra boost of flavour and nutrition, why not add a couple of tablespoons of our British chia seeds to your porridge?

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 100g Naked Barley Flakes
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds (optional)
  • 600ml Milk or Water - or mix to taste
  • Pinch Salt
  • Maple Syrup, Sugar or Honey to sweeten
  • Milk or Yoghurt, Chopped Fresh or Dried Fruit to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Put the naked barley flakes in a saucepan, add the milk/water and a pinch of salt
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer over a low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally
  3. (Alternatively mix the ingredients in a microwave-proof bowl and microwave for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes)
  4. Cover and stand for 5 minutes before serving
  5. Serve in bowls, perhaps with some chopped fruit and a little milk or yoghurt, and sweeten to taste

Really enjoyed this barley flake porridge and made a variation on it, using coconut milk – delicious.

The Cook & Him have created these indulgent but protein–packed bites to mark our launch of the first British chia, grown by Peter and Andrew Fairs at Great Tey in Essex. The tiny oil-rich seeds of Salvia hispanica were a staple food in Aztec cultures, alongside beans and corn, and are rich in protein, fibre and Omega-3 fatty acids. These protein bites are vegan and naturally gluten-free.
