For centuries, whole grains — from quinoa and rice, to millet and barley — have sustained people throughout the world. Today, the health benefits of whole grains are clearly documented. Here is an easy recipe that offers a uniquely delicious way of adding grains to your diet.

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350º F. Lightly grease a shallow 2 1/2 quart casserole pan. Gently spread the cooked grains in the casserole dish.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, optional sweetener, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Fold in dried fruit and slowly pour custard on top of grains.

Place pan in a larger pan and fill the larger pan halfway up the sides of the dish with hot tap water. Bake until set, about one hour.

Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, and serve warm, or chill overnight in the fridge and serve cold. If you like, garnish with chopped nuts or a sprinkle of sunflower seeds or pine nuts.

Notes

If you prefer, use soy or rice milk in place of cow's milk. Because these products are generally sweeter than dairy, you may want to reduce the optional sweetener.
