Okay, let me just take a moment of silence for this delicious dish… because it’s THAT good.  I used Seeds of Change grains.. the grains that come in little pouches with about two servings in each.  You just microwave them to cook!  I love making recipes using brands I love and these grains make it super easy to make a delicious bake.  Just add your cheese sauce, some herbs and spices and you’re good to go!  Serve it as a side at your Thanksgiving table… you’ll have people diving in for seconds!
