Storing and reheating
If you are following our Healthy Diet Plan, you can enjoy this breakfast over two mornings. Store half in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. You can serve the second portion cold or warmed through another day in a pan with a drop of milk or water.
Tip the barley and oats into a bowl, pour over 1 litre boiling water and stir well. Cover and leave to soak overnight.
The next morning, tip the mixture into a pan and stir in the plums. Simmer for 15 mins, stirring frequently and adding a little water if necessary to get a consistency you like.
Stir the vanilla into the yogurt and serve on top of the porridge with the seeds sprinkled over.
