    DuChick's Note:

    I have combined a few different methods of cooking this hearty grain and came up with my favorite way. I usually cook up a batch on the weekend and then scoop out a serving as I need it through the week. It reheats in the microwave perfectly! Listed below are some variations to the basic favorite is pumpkin! These additions are not included in the nutrional analysis.

      Great recipes that doubles up well. Freeze in freezer bags and let thaw overnight for a healthy and hearty breakfast.

      I tried the pumpkin puree with spice; not a fan. Maybe b/c the ginger in the spice was overkill for me. Anyways, i will try this again with a different variation, and modify my review.

      This is my new favorite breakfast. It is so worth the time it takes. It reminds me of mornings at my grandmother's, and it's good for you, too. Can't get any better than this. Thanks so much DuChick!
