Breakfast Cereal


Unless you work the night shift a hot breakfast from solar cooked isn’t very practical, but if you don’t mind getting a little help from your microwave previously cooked Sun Oven hot cereal can be reheated in just a few minutes.

Basic Hot Breakfast Cereal

(adapted for the Sun Oven from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker)


1/2 cup wheat berries

1/4 cup cracked wheat

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

3 1/2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

Optional add-ins: raisins, dried cranberries, blueberries, chopped fresh fruit, nuts, brown sugar, maple syrup, milk.


Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

In a large pot, combine the wheat berries, cracked wheat, oats, water, salt, and cardamom. Cover and cook in the Sun Oven until the wheat berries are soft, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Store in the refrigerator or freeze in individual-sized servings until ready to use. To serve heat stove in the microwave or stovetop, stir in desired add-ins just before serving.
