Quick Cream of Wheat

4 cups
Prep time: Cook time: Total time:


  • 4 cups whole milk
  • [1/2] cup farina
  • [1/2] tsp. salt
  • 3 TB. sugar
  • 3 TB. butter
  • 3 TB. pine nuts


In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring whole milk to a simmer, and cook for about 4 minutes. Do not allow milk to scorch.

Whisk in farina, salt, and sugar, and bring to a slight boil. Cook for 2 minutes, reduce heat to low, and cook for 3 more minutes. Stay close to the pan to ensure it doesn't boil over.

Pour mixture into 4 bowls, and let cool for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small pan over low heat, cook butter and pine nuts for about 3 minutes or until pine nuts are lightly toasted.

Evenly spoon butter and pine nuts over each bowl, and serve warm.

Farina is a cereal grain often referred to as cream of wheat. It's usually served warm as a breakfast food but has many other uses in baking or pasta-making.
