This pilaf can be served as a side dish but, especially if you use soy beans, it is hardy enough for a vegetarian main course. If wheat berries and barley don’t make frequent appearances on your table look for a market that sells in bulk. Get just enough for the recipe. You can always go back for more if you really like it.
Sun Oven Multigrain Pilaf
2/3 cup wheat berries
1/2 cup barley (not quick cooking)
1/2 cup wild rice
3 1/2 cups vegetable broth or water
2 cups frozen edamame (soy beans) or baby lima beans
1 sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
Set Sun Oven out to preheat.
Rinse and drain the wheat berries, barley, and wild rice. Combine the rinsed grains and all the other ingredients in a pot. Cover and transfer to the Sun Oven, cook until the grains are soft, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Adjust for salt. Drizzle with additional olive oil, stir, and serve.
