  1. Pulse the spelt berries in a food processor or blender a few times, until the berries resemble steel-cut oats with flour.
  2. Place the spelt in a saucepan over medium-low heat for a few minutes to toast it lightly. Add the water and salt, bring to a boil and then turn down the heat down to simmer. Cook until the spelt is just about tender, 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Add the milk and continue cooking until the spelt is tender and the thickness is to your liking, about 5 to 10 more minutes.
  4. While the spelt is cooking, heat an oven to 400 degrees F. Place the blueberries in a roasting pan and bake until the blueberries have released their juices; 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Divide the spelt into two bowls and top with blueberries and other toppings of your choice, such as maple syrup, milk or cream, or hemp seeds.
