Harvest Grains

Grains are good for you...and they are so versatile that you can mix and match with so many things.

This is a grain mix (from Trader Joe's), which includes:

* Israeli Cous Cous
* Orzo
* Baby Garbanzo Beans (or "channa dahl")
* Red Quinoa

You could also add brown rice, wild rice, or any other whole grain of choice!


* 1 tsp of oil (I used walnut oil)
* 1 medium onion
* lots of mixed mushrooms (I used baby bella mushrooms)
* 1.25 cups of grains
* 1.75 cups of chicken or vegetable broth


* Heat 1 tsp. of oil.
* Sautee onions and mushrooms.
* Season with salt & pepper to taste and set aside.
* Bring liquid to a boil.
* Add grains and bring back to a boil then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
* Stir in onion and mushroom mixture.
* Season with Herbamare to taste.

Serving Suggestion: Serve as a side dish or as a main dish over a bed of steamed spinach...
