Review This Recipe
I made this dish for New Years Eve, served it with ham. It was very well recieved had to print the recipe off twice. I will make it again adding Wheat berries and some more veggies like celery pepper etc. Used veggies stock it was GREAT!
Great for Vegetarians
This recipe was great. I replaced the Maggi Vegetable boullion cubes with liquid vegetable stock as the Maggi had MSG which I am allergic to. It was a great side dish for the vegetarian that ate with us. It was so good that everyone wanted some to eat.
This recipe is so easy to make and so delicious. After I finished making it I realized that it would be great with the leftover pieces from my roasted chicken. Then I added corn tortilla's and sourcream and it was like a mexican dish. My family loves it
Make a double batch!
This is a teriffic recipe! I made it as a vegetarian side dish, and my small family ate it all up. I suggest making a double batch, so you can have leftovers.
I was looking for a healthy side dish to serve for a change of pace and came across this recipe. It is wonderful! The colors, textures, and flavor are better than I would ever have imagined. Even my husband asks for it now. Even though it looks a little different - try it. You won't be sorry. Thanks meals.com for the great recipe.
Heavenly Side Dish
This casserole is the best I have ever had. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and EVERYONE loved it!
