Do you eat breakfast?
I know. Bad. I eat brunch. Sometimes. That counts. Frankly, it counts double if I eat a piece of cake.
Go with it.
This is my favorite thing to eat for breakfast now. It’s creamy. It’s a touch sweet. It’s a touch salty. It’s smooth and it’s crunchy. It’s just plain good.
So try it!
Farina with Apricots & Almonds
2 cups milk
1/3 cup farina (such as Cream of Wheat; not instant) [I used Bob’s Red Mill brand]
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
2 tablespoons almonds, chopped
Bring the milk and a dash of salt to a boil. Whisk in the farina. Reduce heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Spoon into bowls and top with sugar, apricots and almonds.
