recipe

The avocado is known as a "pear" in Jamaica, and has also been called "poor man's butter." Those grown on the island have a smoother, lighter skin than Hass avocados, but the texture and the flesh are similar. There, avocados are most often served peeled and sliced with a morning meal or a sweet snack. From the book "Lucinda's Authentic Jamaican Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

recipe

Barley takes longer than oatmeal to cook, so make a big batch on Sunday for quick reheating during the week. The hearty nature of this barley dish, which channels the flavors of a Turkish breakfast, makes it an equally filling option for any meal of the day.
