Note from Ricardo

You can find multi-grain flakes in select grocery stores or health food stores. Or make your own. In a food processor, combine equal parts oat flakes, spelt flakes, rye flakes and cream of barley. Pulse to make into semolina. Keeps for 3 months in an airtight container at room temperature. For one portion, use 3/4 cup (180 ml) water for 1/4 cup (60 ml) of semolina.
