Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cremini mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 1 Cup pearl barley
  • 1/2 Cup wheat berries
  • 1/4 Cup millet
  • 1/2 Cup wild rice, rinsed
  • 3 Cups chicken stock
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (any mixture of parsley, thyme, oregano, chives, etc. per your preference)
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large ovenproof pot with a tight­fitting lid, melt butter over low heat. Add oil, garlic, and onion.

Cook until onions are softened and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Raise heat to medium high and add mushrooms. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add grains and stir well, coating them with oil. Cook, stirring often, for about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in stock and bring to a boil. Cover pot and put in oven.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove lid and cook a little longer if grains need to be softer. Fold in chopped herbs.

Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and serve hot.*
