I was wondering if rice (maybe Arborio) or quinoa would be a better substitute for barley in a hamburger soup recipe? Is there anything else I could use other than rice or quinoa? I also use to eat barley for breakfast with fruit compote on top. What could else could I use?

I have a similar soup recipe w/ground beef and barley, and I like short grain brown rice as a substitute for the barley. It's chewier and more substantial than plain white rice, and also starchy enough to thicken the broth a bit like the barley did. Can't remember whether I've tried sweet brown rice, which would be starchier still.

I also like the short grain brown rice with cream or butter and brown sugar or maple syrup for breakfast, but I haven't played around much with other grains for hot cereal. Millet is next on my list to try, though there's another thread where several people have posted that they don't tolerate it. Hopefully I won't be one of those!

I'd love to get one of those Crock Pot Little Dippers to fix whole grain hot cereals in overnight. Maybe I'll ask for one for Christmas!

I like using whole soba or buckwheat instead of barley in soups. It expands nicely and has almost the same texture.
