Sean made this barley porridge for breakfast two days ago, and it turned out delicious.

It's full of nutrients as well. Barley, dried apricots, nuts and orange juice are all good for you.

We actually cooked it in a Japanese rice-cooker, you can cook it in a slow-cooker or crock-pot as well. Before you go to bed, put everything in your pot, set it to slow motion; let it cook for overnight, and this yummy yet wholesome breakfast will be ready after you get up next morning.

That's really creative! I'll have to try it!
