About the Grains

In order to make the grains, I just cooked 1 cup of each of the grains and then measured out 3 cups after it was all cooked. This seemed the easiest way to measure these exactly.

About the Walnuts

For the walnuts, you could easily use another nut. Almonds, pecans or even peanuts could work. I actually bought the walnut pieces instead of whole walnuts so I was able to just use them as they were. If you get whole nuts, I suggest chopping them into much smaller pieces.

About the Spices

I created my own mixture and used 3 Tbsp of it. You could easily substitute in Bragg’s Sprinkle mix that can be purchased at a grocery store or online.
