    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    This is a takeoff of a Cooking Light recipe which calls for quinoa. I realized at the last minute I didn't have enough, and this recipe was born as a result.

      Yumm! for this recipe I used barley (I did not get the pearl one), wild rice mix.
      As I did not have celery root I used one big carrot and celery green fresh from the garden that I added at the last moment.
      I prepared the double quanty for us 4.
      Thanks a lot for your recipe and the perfect instructions for the cooking time!

      Very nice! I did need a bit more broth, but turned out wonderful. Great flavor and a wonderful side dish.

      Although I'd intended to add a little more of the vegetable broth (as per Kitzy's review) I forgot, & it actually turned out just fine! We really enjoyed the addition of the berries & TOASTED nuts in this ~ They made this side dish very special! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
