This whole-grain porridge is a healthy way to start the day. Dehulled or hulless barley is unprocessed and takes longer to cook than the quicker pearled barley; use either for this recipe (servings of fiber will differ).

Directions

Combine 4 1/2 cups water, barley, oats, cornmeal, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon stick and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a slow cooker and cover and let sit overnight, at least 8 hours.

In the morning, set the slow cooker to high and cook until the grains are tender, about 2 hours, stirring once halfway through. Ladle the porridge into serving bowls and add your favorite toppings, such as milk, dried fruit, fresh fruit or nuts.
