Soo Foo

I was reading Kristy's blog and she mentioned Soo Foo.   Of course we don't get that in Australia so I decided to make my own.

I used 6 grains - equal amounts of brown rice, black lentils, green lentils, wheat berries, barley and quinoa. I used a rice cooker and added the quinoa half way through cooking.

First batch was a bit gluggy so I used less water and the results were great. I still have to work out the nutritional facts. The taste and texture is fantastic.   A great change from brown rice. I read that if you sprout the wheat berries first then cook its way more nutritious.   I'll have to research that a bit I think! This is what it looked like ...

I will add more grains when I can buy them. You should give it a try!!


  1. I read that one too and was equally curious to try it! Looks like you did a great job with your own version!

  2. Amanda, It looks pretty close! Let me know how it works with the steel cut oats if you decide to try it!
