Multigrains in the Sun

New Sun Oven

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

Ingredients

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

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

Preparation

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.
