I'm rating this a 5 for it's awesome potential, not becuase it was at all what I expected it to be. "Soup" is very misleading. I think I will make this often and use it to serve with plain non-fat yogurt, which will make a great snack, breakfast, or even a lunch. Right now I am eating it for lunch with plain yogurt and a cut up banana. Yum! It's very sweet and very thick -- I don't think I would eat it alone. Also, for all you first-time makers: be assured that it thickens up ALOT as it is chilling -- you do not have to get it completely thickened by cooking it (you will be cooking forever if you try). All in all, I'm very pleased with a healthy and tasty alternative, thank you for giving me something that I would never have discovered otherwise!
I´m dutch and this in NOT a soup. It is a breakfast meal or a dessert. I had this a lot as a kid (my mom is great fan)and I´ll give her the recipe. But I really do not understand, why you placed it with soup
My kids were lukewarm on this one, until I doubled the barley and added a couple of pureed bananas! Now, the entire family enjoys this for breakfast. Thanks for sharing it!
No matter what fruit you use it is great
and if you use less water its great with jello or ice cream
Pretty good. Adding some fresh fruit gives it a little bit more flavor.
This recipe is great as is. I like to experiment and tried it with bananas- not so good. Although I substituted peaches & mangos for the raspberries, cherries & raisins and it was VERY good. I use half the sugar when I make this and I like it. This is a fantastic recipe to personalize after you've made it once or twice. Time consuming, but worth the effort for the price and health- factors.
Very different type of recipe, great for a quick breakfast with a piece of toast or a half bagel! I liked it although I was skeptical at first when I read the recipe.
