Total Time33 mins
Servings: 25 ounces
- 1/3 cup steel cut oats
- 1/3 cup brown short grain rice
- 1/3 cup barley or quinoa
- 3 cups liquid – water bone broth, stock, breast milk or formula
- 2 teaspoons probiotics I recommend this one
In a fine mesh colander, rinse the grains until the water runs clear.
Place the grains and liquid into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes or until all the grains are tender, stirring occasionally.
Let cool for 15-20 minutes or until cool.
Add cooked grains and probiotics into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes on medium-high until completely smooth, adding in additional liquids in 1/4 cup increments if needed. I had to add an additional cup of water to the puree pictured above.
Serve or freeze.
Note on Barley: feel free to sub quinoa instead of the barley for a gluten free baby cereal.
