Alt-Grain Porridge with Garlicky Greens

Garlic and collard greens make a healthy addition to this porridge recipe, but you can use any leftover greens you have on hand.



  • 1 cup spelt, wheat berries, or barley
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1 ounce Parmesan, grated (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Greens and Assembly

  • 4 garlic cloves, lightly crushed
  • 1 bunch collard greens, stems and ribs removed, leaves torn
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)

Recipe Preparation


  • Pulse spelt in a blender or food processor until coarsely chopped (all of the grains should be broken open but not ground to a powder). Combine spelt and 4 cups water in a large saucepan over medium-high; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, whisking occasionally, until spelt is tender and mixture is thick, 25–35 minutes. Whisk in Parmesan and butter. Add water by tablespoonfuls if needed to loosen.

Greens and Assembly

  • While porridge is simmering, cook oil and garlic in a medium skillet over medium, tossing occasionally, until garlic is golden, about 4 minutes. Add greens a handful at a time, tossing until wilted before adding more. Season with salt and pepper and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.

  • Divide porridge among bowls and top with greens. Squeeze some lemon over.
