{December 15, 2016}   Pressure Cooker Oat, Barley, + Coconut Porridge (Happy Cooking by Giada de Laurentiis, 2015, page 15 [also pictured on said page])

Serves 4 to 6.


  • 1 cup pearled barley
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 0.67 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 0.67 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 0.5 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 0.5 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a 6-quart pressure cooker, stir together the barley, oats, coconut, brown sugar, ginger, cardamom, + salt.  Add 6 cups water + stir until the sugar dissolves.  Lock the lid onto the pot + set over high heat.  Bring the pot to high pressure (15 psi).  Once this pressure is reached, reduce the heat as much as possible while keeping the pressure constant.  Cook 14 minutes.
  2. Reduce the pressure.  Remove the pot from the heat + let it sit 10 minutes.  Unlock + open the lid; stir the porridge before serving.
