This is a yummy dish filled with healthy grains, that your little one will enjoy. Just mix up about 1 cup of brown rice, 1 cup of kamut, 1 cup of spelt and 1 cup of barley and keep it in a container, or jar to use in place of your normal rice when needed. My little one loved this pilaf, infact she didnt leave a single grain. I put it in a little suction bowl for her and she scooped it out with her hands and ate the lot.
Mixed Vegetable and 4 Grain Pilaf
Serves 3 (1 adult and 2 kids)
1/2 cup of your 4 grain mix.
