- In a food processor, pulse the flakes until they reach the consistency of semolina, a grainy flour.
- In a pot, bring the water, multi-grain flakes semolina and salt to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until the semolina is cooked and has a creamy texture. Remove from the heat and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Divide the hot cereal between bowls. Top with the fruit, almonds and yogurt and drizzle with maple syrup. Serve immediately.
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.
