Gluten-Free Cracked Grain Cereal Mix
The following directions will help you crack grains in a Vita-Mix. Other grain mills also crack grains — refer to your mill’s manual for directions on this application.
Since we like a Cream of Wheat consistency for our hot cereal, these directions achieve a finer texture of cracking. Adjust accordingly for the degree of fineness or coarseness you desire.
From the cracked grains, make a delicious Gluten-Free Cracked Grain Hot Cereal.
Grind 2 cups of each of the following grains (separately). Or, crack whichever of them you prefer. Use variable speed 8 and the Vita-Mix dry container for the indicated time period.
- Amaranth — 15 seconds
- Buckwheat (hulled) — 10 seconds
- Corn — 60 seconds
- Millet — 10 seconds
- Quinoa* — 10 seconds
- Rice, brown — 25 seconds
- Rice, sweet brown — 25 seconds
- Sorghum — 25 seconds
- Teff — 15 seconds
Mix all ingredients together thoroughly in a large bowl. Store in airtight container(s). Use in Gluten-Free Cracked Grain Hot Cereal.
*Quinoa has a bitter coating called saponin. Using a fine sieve, rinse the quinoa under cold running water for about 2 minutes. Then spread the quinoa out on a baking sheet to dry before grinding.
