Slow Cooker Wheat Berry Cereal
This is a recipe that my hubby remembers eating as a kid and requests it every so often because it really sits good in your stomach. We tend to eat it more in the winter months because it is a warm cereal, but any time of the year is great. This Wheat Berry Cereal is hearty and filling and good at keeping you satisfied until lunchtime. Wheat berries are full of protein, potassium, folate and fiber. Serve with your favorite whole wheat bread, and top with fresh fruit for a nutrient-rich breakfast.
2 cups wheat berries
5 cups water
1/2 tablespoon salt
brown sugar for sprinkling on top (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-10 hrs.
2. Drain wheat berries. Serve in cereal bowl topped with brown sugar and your choice of milk. The cereal is also good topped with fresh fruit. Enjoy!
