Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 tbsp. sesame or olive oil
    1 cup dried barley
    1.5 cups wild rice (or rice mix)
    1 large can chick peas (approx 540 ml)
    1/2 cup slivered almonds for garnish

Directions

Bring three cups of water to a boil on the stovetop. Add wild rice and barley with 1 tbsp of oil. Add salt if desired. Cover and lower heat.

Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. When almost all liquid is absorbed, incorporate one can drained and rinsed chick peas. Continue to cook over low heat until all liquid is absorbed.

Serve with slivered almonds as garnish. Keeps well in the fridge for a week; can be used as a stuffing for Stuffed Peppers; great for vegans as it is a COMPLETE PROTEIN food (due to the ingredients being a combination of whole grains and legumes).
