Ingredients

Pilaf

3 cups apple juice

1/2 cup uncooked wheat berries

1/2 cup uncooked barley

1/2 cup uncooked brown rice

Topping

Fat free or low fat yogurt

Cut-up fresh fruit (blueberries, bananas, strawberries, peaches, etc.)

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine apple juice and wheat berries in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, 5-7 minutes, until mixture comes to a full boil. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 15 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Uncover; add barley and rice. Cover, continue cooking, allowing mixture to gently boil, 50-60 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and grain is chewy but tender. (If grain is still too chewy, add additional 1/4 cup apple juice or water and continue cooking until desired tenderness.)

  3. STEP 3

    Serve warm with yogurt and fruit.
