New year, new routine

I like to eat my breakfast at work.  I like to wake up, do some exercise (at least 3 mornings per week), shower, and head to work, where my raisin toast and fruit and yoghurt is waiting.  I have been eating the same breakfast for at least 2 years and decided it was time for a change.

So while I have the benefit of being at home for a few extra days before I start a new job, I am trying out a new breakfast - The Minimalist's Wheat Berries with Sesame, Soy Sauce and Scallions.  However, I couldn't track down wheat berries, so settled for some pearl barley.

Pearl Barley is kind of irritating to cook because it's hard to tell when it's cooked - it takes anywhere from 30 to 45 mins, and there is not that much of a difference with the cooked pearl barley at either of those points in time. 

Once cooked, rinse under cold water and stir in sesame oil, soy sauce and spring onions.

I may have put on too many spring onions this time...
