Great River Organic Milling Brown Rice and Barley Hot Cereal

 ½ cup Brown Rice and Barley Hot Cereal
 1 ½ cups Water (* for the microwave 1 1/4)
 1 pinch Salt (optional)
Toasting Grain Instructions:

Using a nonstick pan or iron skillet place 1-2 tbsp. butter into a warm pan and keep the burner on medium. After butter has melted add a layer of cereal to fill the pan to about a ¼ deep. Using a wooden spoon stir occasionally until cereal begins to brown. You will also notice a nice nutty aroma filling your kitchen. After the cereal is toasted to a golden brown add water to cover cereal and then some, being careful not to get splashed or burned from the steam coming off the pan. Turn the burner down low and simmer for fifteen minutes or the grains are soft. Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for another great breakfast.

Microwave Instructions:

In a microwave safe bowl add 1/2 cup dry cereal mix, 1 and 1/4 cup water and a pinch of salt. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent boil over.
Please note: when cooked makes 1 cup of hot cereal. Cook times may vary based on microwave power settings.
