A Versatile Medley of Grains on the Cheap.
I was inspired by a bag of ‘Engine 2 Morning Blend’ that I picked up at Whole Foods some time ago. It consisted of farro, barley, wheat berries, and golden raisins. It was crazy delicious but also crazy expensive, so I decided to recreate it at home since it wouldn’t be too hard to mimic.I utilized the bulk bins, buying wheat berries, barley, quinoa, & golden raisins. The bulk bins saved mad money and I always enjoy scooping like a pro anyway. The assembly process wasn’t rocket science…I prepared each grain according to their specific instructions and once they cooled, I threw them together with the raisins. Now whenever I need something substantial for a meal, I have a base! I have been eating this as is, pairing it with some curried veggies & sriracha, and even enjoying it with some fresh berries, sliced bananas, warmed almond milk and a touch of cinnamon. I love the versatility, either enjoying it as a hearty breakfast or as an middle eastern inspired dinner. Think outside the prepackaged meal and start saving some money!!
