“I don't remember where I found this, but it's a staple around our house now. It's chewy, kind of nutty, and very filling. It's also very easy (as long as I think about it at least an hour before I need it!) It's an easy side dish as is, upgrades easily to a pilaf (see directions below), works well under meats and sauces, leftovers go great in soup, and it is even good with a little sugar, cinnamon, and cream over it for breakfast or dessert! So many possibilities with so few ingredients. ;o)”
