Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Vegetarian Recipes.

Barley, bulgur, and vegetables cook in the oven and create a fiber-rich entrée or side dish while you . . . do anything YOU want.

“Oh, sorry.  Not now . . . I’m in the middle of cooking dinner.”

I will give this a try.

Another versatile recipe to play around with . . . adding (or subtracting) veggies, and serving it with different sides.

I’ll also try it, sounds a very comforting dish.

It gives me a chance to use interesting grains (barley and bulgur) without standing over the stove waiting for them to cook.

Just pop it in the oven, and have a glass of wine.

I was about to suggest that someone take a photo of the casserole, but then I heard this Nancy voice: “‘Scuse me. Just go ahead and make the danged thing!” 🙂

If you make it, don’t forget about it (like your porridge). It won’t benefit from sitting alone in the dark all night while you write.
