Makes 1 serving - Prep time: 5 minutes - Cook time: 35 minutes


Ingredients for the BROL (barley, rye, oats and lentils) - makes 5 cups:

1/2 cup dried black lentils, rinsed

1/2 cup hulled barley, rinsed

1/2 cup rye berries, rinsed

1/2 cup oat groats, rinsed



1 cup BROL, warmed

1 tablespoon unsweetened cacao powder

1 tablespoon date syrup or blackstrap molasses

2 tablespoons pistachio pieces

1/2 cup fresh pitted or thawed frozen cherries



- To prepare the BROL, use an electric pressure cooker or multicooker to pressure cook the lentils in 1 cup of water on high. Allow time for natural pressure release so the remaining water gets absorbed.

- Remove the cooked lentils from the pot and set aside.

- Combine the barley, rye, and oat groats in the cooker. Stir in 3 cups of water. Pressure cook for 30 minutes.

- Add the cooked lentils to the cooked grains and toss gently to combine.

- Spoon the BROL into a bowl. Sprinkle with the coca and then drizzle with date syrup. Add the pistachio and half of the cherries, stir until combine. Garnish with the remaining cherries and serve!
