I wasn’t too sure what to make for dinner tonight. For some reason, I was craving grains & sweet potatoes. So I decided to create a grain & veggie dish. I love meals like this but I hardly ever make them.
I used a combination of Pearled Barley, Medium Grain Brown Rice, and Bulgur Wheat. I cooked the Pearled Barley in Chicken Broth instead of the usual water and it really gave the barley an AWESOME taste. It smelled awesome cooking on the stove too. I highly recommend trying this out! It will work great with rice and any other grain you are cookin’ up.
I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I chopped the parsnip and sweet potato and tossed them in olive oil, kosher salt, rosemary, thyme, and sage. I also sliced red onion and added it to the baking sheet. Cook for about a 1/2 hour.
Meanwhile, cook all your grains on the stovetop. Once cooked, combine all of the grains in a bowl and top with sweet potato mixture. Add olive oil and mix. I also added some chickpeas which I toasted up in a pan with olive oil.
I made quite a lot, but that’s okay…it will make good leftovers!
