Ancient Grain Breakfast – Candy Coated Culinista

The journey the put more gluten-free and ancient grains into my diet continues. I bought this book after I made my bulgur wheat and black lentil salad, only to find this pairing in this book also I love when I think like the cookbook, it means I am on the right path and my food pairing process is true. I usually have smoothies for breakfast or toast or cereal, but I wanted to mix up my breakfast routine.

My thoughts
This smelt great making this before bed. It took no time at all and I was hoping for great results in the morning. When I warmed it up it tasted good, I just have to get used all these grains. I was expecting it to taste like oatmeal with a twist, but I will put in more oats if I want it to be more like the traditional oatmeal. Over time I will learn to love this with some more tweaking.
