Start with a few cups of cooked grains - lately we’ve been loving wheat berries and freekeh. You can start with one cup or 10, depending on how much you want to make. Now, chop up some mushrooms - one cup mushrooms for every cup of grain (or so…) chop up a bit of garlic too, and a little onion if you have some.
To make the dish, saute the garlic and the onion in a bit of olive oil (or your current favorite - we actually just used avocado oil for the first time yesterday and it rocked!). Add the garlic and the mushrooms and cook until soft and golden brown. Mix the cooked mushroom mixture in with the grains. The final step involves a bottle of Annie’s Shiitake Sesame Dressing - add as much as you need to flavor and moisten your quick and easy pilaf. It’s delicious hot or cold, and a perfect pairing for wild Coho salmon!
