Overnight Slow-Cooker Barley Porridge Recipe
Overnight Slow-Cooker Barley Porridge
When it comes to breakfast grains, oats receive all the attention, but barley is a major step up. Not only is it more full and satisfying, but it's also high in prebiotic fiber, which promotes good gut bacteria.
Also, it includes beta-glucans, a form of soluble fiber that has been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. And, at 6 grams per 1-cup serving, it contains more fiber than most other whole grains. So why not give barley a shot?
Additional Time: 8 hrs
In a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker, combine the oat milk (or other non-dairy milk or water), barley, and salt. Cook, covered, on Low for 8 hours, or until soft and creamy.
You can use any plant-based milk or water in this recipe, but avoid using dairy because it will curdle.
