Sunrise BarleyPosted: September 2, 2010
Good morning lovies!
It’s Thursday! I have no idea why I’m so excited for this otherwise ordinary day, but I’m feeling downright giddy! Maybe starting off with a brilliantly delicious new breakfast had something to do with it!
Sometimes oats/cereal just doesn’t cut it…
- 1/2 cup dry pearled barley
- 1 cup orange juice
- 3/4 cup POM 100% pomegranate juice
- 1 tablespoon natural turbinado sugar
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1/8 cup chopped almonds
Directions: In a large pot, combine orange juice, pomegranate juice, and turbinado sugar. Bring to a boil and add barley; cover and reduce to low heat. Simmer 30 minutes or until barley is tender. There should be a slight bit of liquid left in the bottom of the pan – this will thicken to a glaze as it cools. Chill barley in refrigerator, then top with blueberries and crushed almonds.
I’m loving the tangy/sweet overtones and the blend of textures – this is a great deviation from my typical breakfast combinations.
I’m falling more and more in love with POM the more I get to play around with it! Thanks again to Ryan for sending some my way 🙂
P.S. – For some extra-curricular reading, check out my Healthy Living Blogs post today @ noon. I’m talking about what health means to me. It’s been great to read what other bloggers have to say on the role health plays in their lives.
