Barley is a great substitute for oatmeal in a hearty porridge. Give it flavor with brown sugar and cinnamon, then add chopped walnuts, heavy cream, or fresh fruit.
Note: To cook barley, combine 1 cup pearled barley with 3 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until barley is tender, about 40 minutes. Drain.
