Mixed Grains Baked With Herbs, Vegetables and Cheese

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

An attractive vegetarian main dish or side dish which I got from a cookbook on grains, I'm sorry I can't remember which one. Best when made with homemade vegetable stock, but isn't everything better with homemade stock?

I just made this. It is fabulous. I followed the recipe except for these items. I only used 3 cups of broth. I doubled the amount of herbs. I used fresh tomatoes, so did not have extra juice to add into the recipe. Really, it smells so good while it's cooking and the taste is excellent. This is a tad bit time consuming. But well worth it! Next time I'll make a double recipe and see how it freezes. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
