Sesame-Stir Fry Vegetable Grande Grains Pilaf

Sesame-Stir Fry Vegetable Grande Grains Pilaf

 Virtual Potluck Healthy New Year Challenge with Bob’s Red Mill and California Olive Ranch: Side Dish

This was a fabulous side dish that would pair quite nicely with a grilled chicken breast, fish or even a steak.  This was so hearty that it could actually be a meal, especially if you throw in a little meat.  I really loved the Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grande Grains, a combination of whole grain wheat, brown rice, oats, rye, triticale, barley, Kamut berries, buckwheat and sesame seeds.  This was my first time to try the Grande Grains and I will be adding it to the menu frequently.

The Miller’s Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a  fruity beginning balanced with a warm lingering spice at the end, pairing perfectly with the orange and garlic flavors.

Your recipe using Miller’s Blend and the Grande Whole Grains Blend looks great. Your right, this side dish would make a wonderful meal on its own. I love the color of the vegetables and the light crunch that water chestnuts deliver. I’ve also never used the Grande Blend but it seems very versatile. The almonds are a nice added touch. Thanks.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out
a developer to create your theme? Superb work!
